Al-Shabab claims it is responsible for the killings of 28 people on a bus traveling towards Nairobi. The bus was stopped in Mandera county near the Somali border and gunmen boarded it, ordering passengers to read from the Qu’ran to separate Muslim and non-Muslim passengers, and shooting those who couldn’t read the text. Passenger on the bus:
When we got down, passengers were separated according to Somali and non-Somalis. The non-Somalis were ordered to read some verses of the holy Koran, and those who failed to read were ordered to lie down. One by one they were shot in the head at point blank range.
