Kenya’s National Disaster Operations Center says all students are now accounted for at Garissa University College where 147 people were killed in an attack by Islamic extremists.
The disaster center tweeted that all the surviving students have been located and are being evacuated from the college. Seventy-nine were injured in the attack and are receiving medical care.
The attack by Somalia’s al-Shabab militants on the college in northeastern Kenya lasted for 13 hours. The four attackers were strapped with explosives which went off like bombs when they were hit by gunfire from Kenyan officers. The four also died in the attack
