Kenya’s government has identified one of the al-Shabaab gunmen they believe is responsible for killing nearly 150 people in a brutal attack at a university on Thursday as the son of a Kenyan government official. Kenya’s interior ministry said the gunman, named as Abdirahim Abdullahi, had been known to police as his father had reported his disappearance to security officials.
