TORONTO, Canada-Once again, terror takes over the world. This past Thursday, April 2, the Somali extremists of Al-Shabab attacked the University in Garissa, Kenya, killing 148 students and injuring 79, almost all Christians. 

The slaughter, which lasted 16 hours, in retaliation for the deployment of Kenyan soldiers in Somalia to combat extremists, has been considered the worst tragedy caused by terrorist groups.

Somali extremists of Al-Shabab (the youth, in English) claimed responsibility for the attack on the University of Garissa, located on the eastern part of the country and less than 200 kilometers from the border. These terrorists declared that the attack was in response to the massacres caused by Kenyan troops fighting the rebels in Somalia.

Last year Al-Shabab attacked the Church Our Lady of the Consolation in Kenya. Gunmen discharged their weapons inside the temple and injured several faithful. That same day, in another church of Garissa, more than 17 people were murdered.

Last year extremists attacked the Westgate shopping center, in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, where 67 were killed. Bishop Joseph Alessandro, in celebration of Easter Sunday, condemned the actions of the extremists and deplored the constant attacks on Christian minorities not only Kenya, but throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

The Canadian Human Rights International Organization (CHRIO), headquartered in Toronto, Canada, condemns these actions which constitute a flagrant violation to human rights, among them life and religious freedom.

At the same time, CHRIO deplores the death of 148 students and the 79 injured in the hands of the militant group Al-Shabab. Similarly CHRIO asks the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenitta, to coordinate actions to disrupt extremists groups in Kenyan territory.

The Canadian Human Rights International Organization (CHRIO) condemns "terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, defined by the International Humanitarian Law as crimes against humanity and sends condolences to the people and Government of Kenya, as well as to the families of the victims and urges once again the Kenyan Government to dismantle these groups that promote terrorism in the Kenyan territory.

Finally CHRIO calls on the governments of the world for the establishment of a climate of peace that will ensure the exercise and enjoyment of Human Rights.
