Muslims in Kenya, all members of al-Shabaab, snuck up to several Christians as they were asleep and slaughtered all of them. They ended up killing over ten Christians. Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, a leader for al-Shabaab, boasted of the killing, saying:
We are behind the Mandera attack. We killed over 10 Kenyan Christians… This is part of our ongoing operations against Kenya.
The overall death count is currently 14. One woman pleaded for her life, and they butchered her mercilessly.
According to one report:
Al Shabaab gunmen killed 14 people, mostly quarry workers, officials said, in an overnight attack on a residential complex in northeast Kenya that the Islamic militant group said had targeted Christians.
Many died in their sleep, the Kenya Red Cross said. The raid, in the town of Mandera, mirrored one in the same county in December in which 36 quarry workers died.
Al Shabaab has made a series of deadly incursions into Kenya, which it says will continue until Nairobi withdraws its troops from an African Union force fighting the militants in their home base of Somalia.
The group’s military operations spokesman, Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, told Reuters its gunmen killed more than 10 Kenyan Christians in Tuesday’s raid. It has in the past singled out non-Muslims to be executed.
“The area … is a plot where quarry workers live. They attacked at around 1 am Most of those killed are workers from upcountry,” Alex Nkoyo, commissioner for Mandera County, he told Reuters by phone. He put the death toll at 14.
Among the dead was a woman who had tried to plead with the gunmen before being shot, he said.
Abbas Gullet, the secretary general of Kenya Red Cross, said the workers were attacked as they slept, and that at least 11 people were wounded.
