Kenya's Garissa university reopens after deadly al-Shabab attack

 Kenya's Garissa University College has officially reopened, nine months after the killing of nearly 150 people, mainly students, in an attack by militant Islamist group al-Shabab.
Staff have reported to work while students are expected to be back on campus next Monday.
A police post has been set up on the campus in north-eastern Kenya, to improve security.
The April attack was the deadliest so far by the Somali-based group in Kenya.

Following its closure, some 650 students from Garissa University College were offered places at a sister campus in Eldoret, western Kenya, to continue their studies.
They are not expected to return to Garissa now that it has reopened, university authorities say. (bbcafrica)
