Somalia’s al-Qaida-linked rebel group, al-Shabab have claimed responsibility for the gun massacre that took place yesterday (Saturday) in a Nairobi city mall. 59 people are confirmed dead so far, among them a good number of non-Kenyan nationals.  An indeterminate number of hostages are still being held in the city mall.  Thankfully the Cameroonian government has not made any statement on whether any Cameroonians lost their lives in Saturday’s attack. Whether that’s good or bad, we’ll keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.

We join the rest of the world to light candles and sympathize with those who lost loved ones in the attack. Violence is never the answer.
