Kenyans are grieving today. Yesterday’s attack on Garissa University College left 147 students dead. The four al-Shabab militants were also killed after the Kenyan army was able to gain access to the block of dormitories where the gunmen were.

NPR’s Greg Warner is following the story from Nairobi and discusses the latest developments with Here & Now’s Robin Young.
