Muslims in Somalia attacked and slaughtered twelve Christians, as we read in one report:
Islamic extremist gunmen from neighboring Somalia killed 12 people in an attack on non-Muslims in Kenya’s northern Mandera County, an official said Tuesday.
Somalia’s al-Shabab rebels claimed responsibility for the early-morning attack on the Bishaaro Guest House, saying its fighters targeted Christians, according to the group’s Andalus radio station.
The gunmen used grenades and homemade explosives to break into the guest house and then stormed in with guns, said Mohamed Saleh, Mandera’s regional commander.
Survivor Veronica Wambui, an actor with a group touring Mandera to showcase textbooks in schools, said they were asleep at around 2:30 a.m. when they heard explosions at the main gate.
The attackers went room to room shooting and killing her colleagues, she said. She said she and others hid in a storeroom and the attackers set off another explosion which made the wall collapse on her.
“I could see the lights from the torch (flashlight) when they were checking out the room, but the collapsed wall had covered me,” said Wambui, speaking from her hospital bed where she was being treated for a bullet wound in her left hand and injuries to her legs.
