Kenya bus attack: 28 non-Muslims killed after being unable to recite Koran in suspected al-Shabab attack

Islamist al-Shabab gunmen apparently placed a Bible on the back of this man after they killed him during the attack on Hindi village, in Lamu county on the coast of Kenya, in which nine people were killed 



Suspected al-Shabab militia have killed 28 people on a bus in Northern Kenya, officials say.

Around 100 gunmen, who are believed to have travelled over the border in Mandera county from Somalia, took the bus off the road before separating the passengers.

It is believed they asked travellers to recite passages from the Koran, shooting dead those who were unable to prove they were practising Muslims.
The bus was travelling to the Kenyan capital Nairobi when it was stopped in the northern county that borders Somalia.

Around 60 people were on the bus at the time of the attack, and it is thought that among the dead are Kenyan public servants – including four police officers - who were heading to the capital for the Christmas holiday.

Mandera East deputy County Commissioner Elvis Korir said the passengers were then separated into two groups. The Somali passengers watched in horror as non-Somalis were herded away from the bus and then killed.

Mr Korir added that many details over the attack remain unclear, but the deaths underscore fears over the lack of security, especially in the remote parts of northern Kenya.
