Kenya’s Garissa University Reopens

Kenya’s Garissa University College officially reopens, nine months after the killing of nearly 150 people, mainly students, in an attack by militant Islamist group al-Shabab.

CHR Comment: The attacks just before Easter last year specifically targeted Christians and is a good example of how African Christians continually face persecution in warring Africa. Garissa University is a public institution, not a Christian school.
