Good Friday slaughter in Kenya - unfortunately the Christians are martyrs

As the Christians of the world are mourning the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, the Kenyan people are embroiled in the aftermath of a terror attack on a college in Garissa. In the planned "surprise" deadly attack, the Chrisians were targeted by the killers.

BBCNews reports - Locals question why security was not heightened, with only two guards on duty at the time of the attack.

In my opinion, the Kenya killing attacks were calculated to coincide with the Christian remembrance of Good Friday, because the murderers were reported to have spared the Muslim students.  

Clearly, the Christians are martyrs, while the murderers are criminal evil doers. In the words attributed to the Apostle Matthew 24:26  "But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born."

Kenya al-Shabab attack: Security questions as Garissa dead mourned - BBCNews

Kenya is mourning 148 people killed in Thursday's al-Shabab attack on Garissa university campus, amid questions over why warnings were ignored.

Kenyan newspapers say there was intelligence information of an imminent attack on a school or university.

Locals question why security was not heightened, with only two guards on duty at the time of the attack.

Four more people have been found alive on the campus, but two are suspects and have been arrested, sources say.

One is said to be a Tanzanian national with no known links to the university.

Kenya's interior minister declared the recovery operation over.

Joseph Nkaiserry identified the victims as 142 students, three police officers and three soldiers.

"We have called off the operation after combing the whole university, all the bodies have been removed from the scene and brought to Nairobi," he said after arriving back in the capital.

Police in neighbouring Uganda say they have received information suggesting a similar attack is being planned there. Attack warning

Security services appear to have had some information that an attack on an institution of higher learning was in the offing and appear to have warned institutions to be careful, the Daily Nation newspaper reports.

It says the university of Nairobi warned its students on 25 March that it had received intelligence information about a possible attack on a university and asked them to be vigilant.

Please pray for Tim and Cheri Hoke in Uganda....God protect them and their students from harm.
