Happening Now: Kenyan Warplanes Avenge Terrorist School Massacre

CBN : Apr 7, 2015 : Staff - CBN

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the United States is supporting Kenya in its fight against al-Shabab.

(Kenya) - Kenyan warplanes bombed suspected al-Shabab terrorist camps in Somalia Monday.

The airstrikes are retaliation for the jihadist group's brutal attack last week on Kenya's Garissa College University that left 148 dead.

The Muslim extremists targeted Christian students at that Kenyan college.
One survivor of last week's massacre, a student named Gitonga Ng'ang'a, said it's only God's mercy that allowed him to escape.

"For me to survive I don't just take it as good luck because I know and I am praying even to God to make me understand why He let me escape from the claws of the enemy," Ng'ang'a said.

"That tells me I have an assignment that is not complete and I have to see to it that it's accomplished," he added.

Now a Muslim member of Kenya's parliament is speaking out against al-Shabab, calling them "demented monsters" who do not represent most Muslims.

He also said society must work to help young people resist the lure of "this evil ideology."

Meanwhile, Pope Francis is calling on the world not to "look the other way" while extremists kill Christians.
