Millitants In Kenya Threaten To Massacre Christians On Easter Sunday



Churches in Kenya turned to armed guards to protect their Easter Sunday congregations after al Shabab gunmen massacred nearly 150 people at a Kenyan university on Thursday, singling out Christians for point-blank executions.
Militants on Saturday threatened to stage more attacks and turn Kenyan cities "red with blood." Police said they are providing extra security at shopping malls and public buildings in the capital, Nairobi, and in the eastern coastal region.
Kenya's Christians make up 83 percent of the population of 44 million, and the nation's priests, who have been targeted by Islamists in the past, said they fear Christian churches may bear the brunt of possible fresh attacks on Easter Sunday.


Pope Francis called the killings "senseless brutality", while the Cairo-based top Sunni Muslim body Al-Azhar has condemned the "terrorist act committed by Somalia's Shebab".
