Details continue to emerge about exactly how al Shabaab terrorists massacred innocent defenseless students at Garissa University in the early hours of Thursday morning.
The first explosion at the main entrance which is believed to have been a grenade had the predictable response of students rushing out of buildings to see what was happening and hopefully get to safety. The gunmen positioned themselves strategically outside the entrances and mowed down dozens of students who came running out.
But the merciless terrorists were even more devious than that. They shouted out to students that if they came out of hiding they would live but if they remained hidden in the building they would surely die. Many believed them and ventured out only to die in a hail of bullets.
Other eyewitnesses recounted how the terrorists asked their victims to lie face down in a long continuous line and then shot them one by one at the back of the head. This is something that has also been reported from numerous earlier attacks. The militants also taunted the students and answered cell phones from anxious relatives shouting into them "we are killing them now." Read more details in this Daily Nation report.
As usual the terrorists separated Muslims from Christians and promptly killed the latter. There has been a spirited and consistent effort from al Shabaab to trigger animosity between Christians and Muslims in the country and recreate the Nigerian situation here. Mercifully they have failed miserably in this.
According to some eye witnesses there were more than 5 attackers with some claiming that they counted 7. Interestingly one of the militants seems to have been an expert sniper and shot at several advancing KDF soldiers thus slowing down the rescue effort considerably.
