Dozens of extremists wielding automatic weapons attacked a small Kenyan coastal town for hours, assaulting the police station, setting two hotels on fire, and spraying bullets into the street. At least 48 people were killed, officials said Monday.
The assault in Mpeketoni began around 8 p.m. local time on Sunday night as residents were watching World Cup matches on TV and lasted until early Monday, meeting little resistance from Kenya's security forces.
At the Breeze View Hotel, the gunmen pulled the men aside and ordered the women to watch as they killed them, saying it was what Kenyan troops are doing to Somali men inside Somalia, a police commander said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to share that detail of the attack.
Authorities blamed al-Shabab, Somalia's al-Qaida-linked terror group, who have vowed to carry out terror attacks to avenge the Kenyan military presence in Somali. Along with its Somali fighters, the group also has many Kenyan adherents.
Kenya's top police commander, David Kimaiyo, said the death toll was 48.

Those Moslems. What a bunch.

Prayers would be appreciated.
The only real solution, if implemented, would be condemned by the UN and result in “peacekeepers” being brought in to stop it. Just look at the Central African Republic, and what happened after they started to respond against Muslim insurgency.
Forget it, He’s already president. Besides you have to time travel.
We’re going to find out, sooner or later,
If Abdul will pray, to a glowing crater.
Hey, extremists, didn’t you get the memo from your fellow countryman, Barack Obama? The world is the least violent it’s ever been. Now knock that stuff off you chuckleheads or Michelle might tweet a harshly worded hashtag.
