Topic: Kenyan university students march to demand security after Garissa


By Duncan Miriri and Humphrey Malalo NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenyan university students marched in the capital on Tuesday to demand more security from the government after gunmen killed 148 people at a campus in the eastern town of Garissa last week. A citizens group held a vigil in Nairobi's main park later in the evening, grieving for those killed in the attack claimed by al Shabaab Islamists based in neighboring Somalia. Last Thursday, gunmen from the al Qaeda-aligned group stormed Garissa University College, some 200 km (120 miles) from the Somali border. The government must tackle the issue of insecurity seriously," said John Derrick, a student at the Technical University of Kenya.
