Kenya's government has been under fire since the September 2013 Shebab attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, in which at least 67 people were killed in a siege involving four gunmen lasting four daysMasked gunmen were on Thursday holding an "unknown number" of hostages after storming a university in northeast Kenya, close to the border with Somalia, killing at least two people and wounding scores. Four of the most critically injured were flown to the capital Nairobi for emergency medical treatment, Kenya's official National Disaster Operation Centre said. The Kenya Red Cross which is leading the medical response to the attack said there were "an unknown number of student hostages" although "50 students have been safely freed". "Gunmen forced their way into Garissa University by shooting at the guards manning the main gate at around 5:30 am," said Kenya Police Chief Joseph Boinet.
