Kenya religious leaders urge unity after Garissa attack

From USA Today-

As Good Friday services took place here, Christian and Muslim leaders preached unity a day after a horrific terrorist attack at Garissa University left 147 students dead, most of them Christians.

Al-Shabab, the Somalia-based Muslim insurgency, claimed responsibility for the massacre that began around 5:30 a.m. Thursday as Muslims students were at mosque for morning prayers and Christian students were still asleep in their dorms.

The masked attackers — strapped with explosives and armed with AK-47s — stormed the dorms, took some hostages and gunned down others. When Kenyan security forces struck back, the attackers detonated explosives. Security forces killed four militants.
