Kenya Suspends Senior Security Officials Over Al Shabaab University Attack

Kenya has suspended nine senior security officials pending an investigation into their handling of this month's attack on a university by al Shabaab militants in which 148 people were killed, the interior minister said on Tuesday.
President Uhuru Kenyatta's government has been under pressure to act over security failures that allowed gunmen from the Somali militant Islamist group to storm Garissa University College on April 2.
Al Shabaab has now killed more than 400 people in Kenya since Kenyatta took office in April 2013, hurting the east African nation's image abroad and severely damaging its vital tourism industry.
