Islamists Vow to Turn Streets 'Red With Blood: Report

Islamist extremists linked to al Qaeda reportedly vowed Saturday to wage a war against civilians and run the streets "red with blood" after killing nearly 150 people at a university in Kenya. Four gunmen from Somali militant group al Shabab went on a killing spree on Thursday, hunting down and executing students in a campus in Garissa, a northeastern town 120 miles from the Somali border. In the message reported by Reuters as a statement aimed at the Kenyan public, the group said the raid was retribution for Kenya's military presence in Somalia and mistreatment of Muslims within Kenya.
