7 killed in Kenya high school shooting during raid

A student suspected of joining in an armed raid that killed six at a school in Kenya's far north Saturday was stoned to death by angry locals and his body burned, officials said. "I also pray for a quick recovery of those injured", the Head of State stated through his twitter account.

He then returned to AIC Lokichogio Secondary School to search for the boy, who was not there at the time.

Confirming the incident, Rift Valley Regional Cordinator Wamyama Musyambo said the armed student who is from the Toposa community that lives in South Sudan attacked the school in what is believed to be a revenge mission.

The attack took place at a school in the remote town of Lokichogio in Kenya's Turkana region, close to the border with war-torn South Sudan.

As well as killing six people, witnesses say the attackers raped two girls and injured 18 students.

He added that eighteen other students sustained bullet injuries and have been rushed to different hospitals in Turkana and Uasin Gishu counties.

He added that, during the school rampage, gunmen had looked for the headteacher and the other student involved in the brawl but could not find them and shot fellow pupils instead.

The arrest comes just hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered police to pursue the killers of 7 students and a night guard at the school.

Musyambo said that security officers responded to the attack immediately and pursued the suspects who hadcrossed the border to South Sudan.
