  1. Crimson Clupeidae says

    I saw some of this on the news, and the images were quite disturbing. What I didn’t see was what the purported reason(ing) for this attack was. Random? Targeting a girls’ school specifically?

    Sad and tragic.

  2. says

    The purported reasoning was said to be because Kenya sent troops to battle al-Shabab. Schools are soft targets – remember Peshawar? It’s not a girls’ school though, and I’ve posted photos of boys as well as girls. Or men as well as women but dear god they all look like babies.
