An attack by masked terrorists who stormed a university in eastern Kenya has left at least 147 people dead.
At least 79 others have been confirmed as wounded in the siege at Garissa University, which has now ended after the four attackers were killed.
Survivors said the masked attackers singled out non-Muslim students and gunned them down without mercy.
Others ran for their lives as bullets whistled through the air.
Two security guards, one policeman and one soldier were also killed in the siege, which ended 15 hours after the gunmen launched their assault.
The four gunmen had strapped themselves with explosives and "exploded like bombs" when they were shot, according to Interior Minister Joseph Nkaissery.
Somalia's al Shabaab militant group has claimed responsibility for the pre-dawn attack, which is the country's deadliest since the US embassy bombings in 1998.
Student Michael Bwana, who managed to flee, said most of those taken hostage were girls.
Kenya Police Chief Joseph Boinet said the gunmen forced their way into the university at 5.30am by shooting at the guards manning the main gate.
Collins Wetangula, the vice chairman of the student union, said he was preparing to take a shower when he heard gunshots coming from a dorm.
"All I could hear were footsteps and gunshots; nobody was screaming because they thought this would lead the gunmen to know where they are," he said.
"The gunmen were saying sisi ni al-Shabab (Swahili for we are al-Shabab).
"If you were a Christian you were shot on the spot.
"With each blast of the gun I thought I was going to die."
Grace Kai, a student at a neighbouring college, said there had been warnings of an imminent attack.
"Some strangers had been spotted in Garissa town and were suspected to be terrorists," she said.
"Then on Monday our college principal told us ... that strangers had been spotted in our college.
"On Tuesday we were released to go home, and our college closed, but the campus remained in session, and now they have been attacked."
