At least 147 dead at Kenyan university - UPI.com: Witnesses reported at least five masked gunmen stormed the campus, in eastern Kenya, Thursday morning and began firing indiscriminately. The gunmen gained access to the campus and at least two buildings after firing at guards, BBC News reported, killing nearly 150 people. Several students were also taken hostage.

Abdikadir Sugow, spokesman for the Garissa county government, said the attackers were wearing what appeared to be combat gear, including suicide vests or bulletproof vests.

More than 500 students were rescued from the campus. It's unclear how many students were at the school at the time of the attack, but about 900 students are enrolled there.
