Kenya rejects university massacre ‘slow response’ criticism


NAIROBI: Kenyan special forces were not deployed to a university massacre in which 148 people died for at least seven hours, reports said Sunday, as the government defended the response. Alarm bells rang at Kenya’s elite Recce Company in Nairobi as soon as the first reports of Thursday’s pre-dawn attack emerged. But it took until just before 2:00 p.m. for the main team to reach the attack site in the northeastern town of Garissa, Kenya’s major Nation newspaper said, noting that the first plane to the city carried the interior minister and police chief.
