ICC Note: The deadly attack in Orlando that took place on Sunday, June 12, has re-sparked memories of the horrific attack by terrorist group Al-Shabaab on Garissa University in Kenya that resulted in the death of 147 people. Although it has been a year since this attack, which took place on April 2, 2015, the people of Kenya are still grieving and many have not yet recovered from the horrible attack in Garissa. People have begun talking about it again recently, perhaps because the terrorist attack in Orlando reminds them that these attacks are taking place all over the world, and some get less attention than others. The people of Kenya who were affected by the Al-Shabaab attack understand the pain that those affected by the Orlando attack are experiencing now. Many survivors of the Garissa attack have still not recovered and are haunted by the gruesome attack on their university. Al-Shabaab, an Islamic militant group, is known for targeting Christians and they continue to operate in Kenya.
