‘Sad day for Kenya’: Bodies are still on the ground today at Garissa University College, a day after a terror attack left 147 people dead. Gunmen from Somalia-based Al-Shabaab rampaged through the campus, firing indiscriminately, separating Muslim students from Christian students and taking the Christians hostage. A medic on the scene said most of the victims were found face down and had been shot in the back of the head. The four gunman are dead, and a nightly curfew is now in effect in Garissa. The attack has Kenyans asking if the nation’s security is strong enough against the terrorists.
‘Premediated murder’: Andreas Lubitz researched suicide methods and looked up info on cockpit doors in the days before he is suspected of deliberately crashing Germanwings Flight 9525 into the French Alps. One investigator said the searches are further proof that Lubitz’s actions amount to “premeditated murder.” Investigators did get some good news yesterday: the plane’s flight data recorder was found. Now they have both “black boxes,” since the cockpit voice recorder was found shortly after the crash.
Tweaks and fixes: Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed yesterday a legislative “fix” to his state’s week-old religious freedom law, ensuring that businesses can’t use it to discriminate against gays and lesbians. Arkansas also tweaked its religious freedom bill, with Gov. Asa Hutchinson signing it after getting the changes he wanted that made the bill nearly identical to a federal version. Social conservatives howled at the fixes, but criticism from big companies like Walmart and Apple forced lawmakers to act.
