ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) New images showed inside the campus of the Kenyan university where the al Shabaab militant group massacred students last week. Gunmen from the al Qaeda-aligned group killed 148 people on Thursday when they stormed the Garissa University College campus, some 200 km (120 miles) from the Somali border. Blood stains and clothing were scattered on the floor, while exteriors of buildings bore the scars of dozens of bullets. Al Shabaab has killed more than 400 people on Kenyan soil in the last two years, including 67 during a siege at Nairobi's Westgate mall in 2013, piling political pressure on President Uhuru Kenyatta that intensified with last week's killings. Kenya has struggled to stop the flow of militants and weapons across its porous 700-km border with Somalia, and the violence has also damaged the economy by scaring away tourists and investors.
