NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Gunmen killed two policemen guarding a church, snatched their rifles and then opened fire on the congregation from inside and out on Sunday, killing 15 people and wounding 40, security officials said.
Two gunmen entered the simple wooden church in the city of Garissa at around 10:15 a.m. Sunday, while two others waited outside, police commander Philip Ndolo said. When the congregation fled the attack inside, they ran straight into another hail of bullets from gunmen outside, he said. At least one grenade was detonated in the attack.
Atrocities like this should make people think: why hasn’t the god of such Muslims spoken against these acts? On the other hand, why hasn’t the god of Christians come to the aid of Christians who are brutally murdered this way? They’re both wrong and history has taught us that the side with the most influence and/or violent force is the side that seems right. It’s sad that people lose their lives due to acts of extremism.
