MASKED gunmen from Somalia’s Shebab Islamist group have massacred at least 147 Kenyan students in a daylong college campus siege, the deadliest attack in the country since US embassy bombings in 1998.
Hurling grenades and firing automatic rifles, the gunmen stormed the university in the north-eastern town of Garissa as students were sleeping, shooting dead dozens before setting Muslims free and holding Christians and others hostage.
All four of the gunmen wore suicide vests packed with explosives, detonating themselves in huge blasts as the dramatic assault finally ended after some 16 hours.

Germanwings Flight 9525: Pilot Andreas Lubitz ‘researched cockpit doors, suicide

 

  • Andreas Lubitz researched ‘cockpit doors, security measures’ before crash
  • Body parts of all 150 people aboard identified
  • Second black box found after nine-day search
  • Germanwings says it didn’t know Lubitz had suffered from depression
GERMAN prosecutors say the co-pilot suspected of deliberately crashing a Germanwings plane in the French Alps had searched online for information about suicide and cockpit doors in the week before the disaster.
A tablet computer which prosecutors said was used by Andreas Lubitz was found in a search of a flat he used in Dusseldorf, the prosecutor’s office in the western city said in a statement.
“The browser history wasn’t erased, in particular the search terms called up on this device in the period from March 16 to March 23 were able to be retraced,” it said on Thursday.
It indicated the user had been researching “medical methods of treatment”, “ways to commit suicide” as well as “cockpit doors and their security provisions”, it added.
A senior European government official with knowledge of the case told CNN Lubitz’s actions and search history amounted to “premeditated murder.”

French investigators have identified body parts from all 150 people aboard the Germanwings flight.
Investigators have found and studied 2,854 body parts, Marseille Prosecutor Brice Robin said on Thursday.
