Topic: Kenya university death toll seen rising; anger over security failures


By Edith Honan GARISSA, Kenya (Reuters) - The death toll in an assault by Somali militants on a Kenyan university is likely to climb above 147, a government source and media said on Friday, with local residents furious over the government's failure to prevent the bloodshed. Strapped with explosives, masked al Shabaab gunmen stormed the Garissa University College campus, some 200 km (120 miles) from the Somali border, in a pre-dawn rampage on Thursday. "It's because of laxity by the government that these things are happening. For something like this to happen when there are those rumors is unacceptable," said Mohamed Salat, 47, a Somali Kenyan businessman.
