Gunmen storm Kenyan college campus in Garissa: media

NAIROBI - Gunmen stormed a Kenyan college campus in the north eastern town of Garissa in the early hours of Thursday morning, setting off explosions and exchanging gunfire with security services for several hours, Kenyan media and Red Cross said.

The stand-off was ongoing at the Garissa University College, Kenya's Daily Nation newspaper and Capital FM radio station said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the raid yet. In the past, Somali Islamist militant group al Shabaab has carried out several attacks in Garissa and across Kenya, including the 2013 attack on an upscale shopping mall in the capital Nairobi.
