Three Christians killed in Kenya; potential terror attacks expected in coming days

Al-Shabaab, a Somali-based terror group, killed three Christian teachers from Kamuthe Primary School in Garissa, Kenya, at around 2 a.m. on January 13, reports from International Christian Concern (ICC) say.

Before attacking, the terror group destroyed the telecommunication device in the area to stop the teachers from contacting anyone.

"My fellow teachers were fatally shot by an unknown number of suspected al-Shabaab militia who stormed Kamuthe primary school early this morning and leaving one severely injured by two gunshots," said Robert Kibutu, a teacher who resides outside of the school's residential area.

"We are sad and at the same time scared because we are targeted for being non-local government workers that belong to the Christian faith," the teacher added.

Teachers who were killed in the violent attack were Titus Ushindi, Caleb Mutua and Samuel Muthui Kyonzu.

According to the region's security head, one local teacher was taken away by the militants and a non-local female nurse was spared due to her gender.

On January 15, 2020, the al-Shabaab terror group will mark two of its deadliest murders of its forces El Adde, Somalia and DusitD2, which took place in the year 2016 and 2019, respectively.

Security intelligence agencies are warning that there could be potential terror attacks in the region in the coming days as al-Shabaab often commemorates anniversaries by conducting more attacks.
