13 Money Transfer firms closed in Kenya after University Attack

Nairobi, April 08: A week after the militants stormed the Garissa University in Kenya, the government closed 13 money transfer firms to prevent more possible terror attacks in the country.

With this order, the bank accounts of 86 people and some organisations linked to Somalis have been frozen.

The country witnessed the barbaric massacre that left 148 people, mostly students dead at the premises of Garissa University last week.

That attack was carried out by the al-Shabab group that has close links with Somalis, who have been staying in the country following the victim of the drought in Somalia.
