Somali militants vowed Saturday to wage a long war against Kenya and run its cities "red with blood" after the group's fighters killed nearly 150 people during an assault on a Kenyan university.Kenyan officials said they had arrested five men in connection with Thursday's attack by Al-Shabab gunmen at Garissa university, 200 km from the Somali border. The Interior Ministry said three men thought to have co-ordinated the assault were arrested while trying to flee to Somalia. They were all Kenyans of Somali origin, as was another of those detained, who was a security guard at the university. The Kenya Red Cross said it had found a woman survivor Saturday in the university, two days after the siege ended."The usual assurances that security is being beefed up and patrols intensified have become hollow," the biggest-selling Daily Nation newspaper said in an editorial comment.Foreign media published a photograph they said was taken by Kenyan police that showed more than 70 bodies, lying face down in a university hallway, each apparently shot in the head. More than 400 people have been killed by Al-Shabab on Kenyan soil since Kenyatta took power in April 2013, including 67 people who died in September of that year during a siege on an upmarket shopping mall in the capital Nairobi.
