The casualties of Kenya’s Garissa University College terror attack have risen to 147, according to media reports. The attack was carried by Somalia-based Al-Shabaab militant group.
The bodies of the guards of the university were found strewing near the university’s gate, reported the Daily National.
A police official at the location said, “There was a shootout between the attackers and police officers who were guarding the students’ hostels.”
“The attackers shot indiscriminately inside the university compound,” he added.
The Kenya Defence Force (KDF) and police have entered the university’s compound to rescue the injured. Moreover, the students who were seriously injured were flown to Nairobi for the further treatment.
