Islamic extremists ambushed a bus heading for the Kenyan capital of Nairobi and forced all the passengers off. They then separated Muslims from “infidels” by forcing everyone to recite passages from the Koran. They attempted to kidnap the 28 who failed but the bus broke down due to the rocket grenade launcher they had fired to stop it.
After their plan failed, they instead executed all 28, and fled to Somalia. The attack was said to be revenge for police raids at mosques in Mombassa last week. 19 men and 9 women were killed, with many of them public servants heading to Nairobi for the holidays.
