Terror attack: Kenyan teachers threaten to flee after school attack

NAAIROBI, A teachers’ union in Kenya has threatened to evacuate teachers out of an area where three teachers were killed in a terrorist attack on Monday morning if the government does not improve security.

The deadly attack happened in Kamuthe in Garissa county. A telecommunications mast and a police camp were also targeted.

The teachers were not from the area and the Secretary-General of Kenya National Union Teachers (Knut) Wilson Sossion said that deploying teachers from the rest of Kenya to work in the region near the attack was not the right thing at all.

The Kenyan government has promised to restore security after the threat, the Daily Nation newspaper reports.

No-one has said they carried out the attack but the militants al-Shabaab have been active in the area.

Six suspected al-Shabaab attacks have taken place in Kenya in just over a month, including one on a military base that left three American military personnel dead.
