Kenya's government has been under fire since the September 2013 Shebab attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, in which at least 67 people were killed in a siege involving four gunmen lasting four daysSomalia's Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab said their gunmen were holding Christian hostages after attacking a Kenyan university on Thursday in an ongoing assault in revenge for Nairobi's troops fighting in Somalia. The gunmen divided students at the northeastern Garissa University between Muslims and non-Muslims, letting the Muslim students go, insurgent spokesman Sheikh Ali Mohamud Rage told AFP by telephone. "Kenya is at war with Somalia.. our people are still there, they are fighting and their mission is to kill those who are against the Shebab," Rage said. The Kenya Red Cross which is leading the medical response to the attack said there were "an unknown number of student hostages" although "50 students have been safely freed".
