AFRICA/KENYA - Security measures have been intensified in front of churches after the massacre of the bus

Nairobi (Agenzia Fides) - Police have stepped up security measures in the County of Mandera (in the north of Kenya on the border with Somalia) where on November 22, 28 people were killed cold bloodedly by Somali Shabaab militants, who selected their victims according to religious belonging, killing those who were not able to recite a verse from the Koran.
According to information sent to Agenzia Fides, the intensified security measures also concern the Christian churches of the area, where the faithful were afraid of going to mass on Sunday, November 23rd. In front of each building of Christian worship there are now three policemen and not two as before who guarantee safety.
The barbaric killing of innocent people is having a social impact because among the people killed there were 7 teachers, doctors and police officers.
In response to the assault on the bus, the Kenyan authorities have claimed to have conducted a series of military operations against the Shabaab in Somalia, during which 100 militants were killed, a claim rejected by a spokesman of the Somali extremists. (L.M.) (Agenzia Fides 24/11/2014)
