Officials: 147 die in Kenya attack
(AP) - Kenya's national disaster operations center and the interior minister say the attack by al-Shabab gunmen on a college campus has claimed 147 lives, besides four attackers who also died.
The interior minister said most of those killed Thursday were students but included two police officers, one soldier and two watchmen.
The disaster center said plans are underway to evacuate students and other affected persons.
It was by far the highest death toll in an attack by al-Shabab, an Islamic extremist group from neighboring Somalia, on Kenyan soil.
It surpasses the 67 who were killed in al-Shabab's attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi in September 2013.
