NAIROBI, Kenya — Gunmen attacked a university in eastern Kenya early Thursday and killed at least 14 people, according to news media reports, as they fought with armed officers and forced their way into student dormitories, the police said.
The National Disaster Operation Center of Kenya said 65 people had been admitted to a hospital as a result of the attack at Garissa University College, most with gunshot wounds. Four critically wounded people were airlifted to Nairobi, the capital, for treatment, the center said on Twitter.
A statement by the United States Embassy in Nairobi said that “according to the reports, there have been explosions and heavy gunfire at the school; hostages have been taken and Al Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack.”
