Victims bodies sent to Nairobi for identification: Kenya al-Shabab attack 

Kenya

April 3, Nairobi: The bodies of many of those killed by Islamist militants al-Shabab at a Kenyan university are being moved to the capital Nairobi for identification. At least 147 people died when the militants stormed Garissa University in north-eastern Kenya, near Somalia.

Four of the gunmen involved were killed by security forces. Police in neighbouring Uganda said that the country is on high alert after receiving information that Al-Shabab was planning a similar attack there.

The mortuaries in Garissa have been unable to cope, and many of the students killed came from other parts of the country.

The BBC’s Anne Soy saw ambulances leaving the Garissa campus on Friday. Hundreds of survivors are also being sent home.

Burials for the Muslims killed in the attack are expected to start taking place.

A dusk-to-dawn curfew has been imposed across north-eastern Kenya.
