Four Christians beheaded in latest Islamist atrocity in Kenya

Witnesses to the loathsomeness said four died altogether and approached police to act after they blamed security administrations for being slow to react to the danger.

The attack from the Somali group Al Shabaab in Lamu County comes a month after 12 individuals were killed in a comparative occurrence in the area.

Lamu County Commissioner Gilbert Kitiyo said around 30 vigorously armed assailants surrounded the victims’ houses before beheading three villagers in Silini-Mashambani, with another killed in Boko village, as reported.

The second aattack in a month caused anger among the nearby Christian populace who challenged at the administration’s absence of reaction. One neighborhood inhabitant Joseph Muchemi disclosed that they were requesting no less than one police post be set for each town to ensure local people.

The militant group is affiliated to Al Qaeda and rose to prominence in 2013 after it claimed responsibility for the deadly attack on Westgate Mall where 67 people died and then on Garissa University College in 2015 where 148 died.

In a spate of recent attacks Al Shabaab has focused on Christians close to the Somali outskirt concentrating on places of worship, traveler transports, police headquarters, malls, correspondence poles and aid workers.
