Kenyan Muslims Shield And Protect Christians In Mandera Bus Attack by DMainMan: 7:25pm On Dec 21, 2015
A group of Kenyan Muslims travelling on a bus ambushed by Islamist gunmen protected Christian passengers by refusing to be split into groups, according to eyewitnesses. They told the militants "to kill them together or leave them alone", a local governor told Kenyan media.

At least two people were killed in the attack, near the north-eastern village of El Wak on the Somali border. The Somali based al-Shabab group is the main suspect for the attack. It has not said if it was responsible, but often carries out attacks in Kenya's north-east.

The bus was travelling from the capital Nairobi to the town of Mandera. When al-Shabab killed 148 people in an attack on Garissa University College in April, the militants reportedly singled out Christians and shot them, while freeing many Muslims.

An attack last year in Mandera, in which Christians were killed after being separated from Muslims, caused the departure of more than 2,000 teachers, as well as many health workers who had come from other parts of the country. An employee of the Makkah bus company, who had spoken to the driver involved in the attack, confirmed to the BBC that Muslims had refused to be separated from their fellow Christian passengers.

One of the victims was shot dead after trying to run away from the militants after passengers had been forced off the bus, the same employee told the BBC's Bashkas Jugsodaay in Nairobi. Al-Shabab has been at war with Kenya ever since Kenyan forces entered Somalia in October 2011 in an effort to crush the militants. Kenya's north-eastern region has a large population of ethnic Somalis.

Proof that not all Muslims are bad people. This story is very powerful. If more Muslims did this and openly spoke against Islamic extremists, the world may be a safer place. Perhaps Donald Trump will have a change of heart when he hears this. Despite all the atrocious crimes and scandals in the news today, it's good to read stories like this.

There's still hope for mankind.

The high time people believe that we met religion here on earth and we shall leave it behind when we depart this place, then the world shall know peace..

This is the most insane post I have ever seen.
Go see how many people muslims killed then you would have a rethink of the crap u write. It's now islam is beginning to see for themselves the kind of "god" they worship. And many of you are tired of the bad name it breeds. You may be peaceful, but islam my friend isn't near peace.
I'm very happy islam sees the truth now, and the same truth will take you to heaven. Christians are not your enemies.
