Kenya’s president vows harsh action against Somali rebels

Kenya’s president has vowed to take harsh measures against Islamic militants after they attacked a school near the Somali border, killing 148 people.
   
President Uhuru Kenyatta warned Saturday in a nationally televised address that the planners and financiers of attacks like the one in Garissa town are “deeply embedded in our communities.”
   
Kenyatta said his administration “shall respond in the severest ways possible” to the Garissa attack, which occurred Thursday when four gunmen entered a campus and slaughtered students. The military moved in hours later and the gunmen were killed.
   
An Interior Ministry spokesman says five people have been arrested on suspicion of suspicion of involvement in the attack, including two at the college.
   
Islamic extremist group al-Shabab is vowing to carry out more attacks. In an online statement, the militants say “Kenyan cities will run red with blood.” They call Thursday’s attack retaliation for killings carried out by Kenyan troops fighting the rebels in Somalia
