Nairobi - A 10 day curfew was imposed on Garissa and other Counties in north Eastern Kenya after a terrorist attack on a university saw more than 70 people killed.
The curfew was invoked on the region by Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett, who said that the move would help slow down movement of militants in the dark.
The Counties affected are Garissa, Mandera, Tana River and Mandera.
The curfew will kick of Friday 3 April to April 14, 2014 from 6:30pm to 6:30am.
70 people have so far been confirmed dead in the attack even though sources involved in the rescue operation told News24 that the body count was well in the hundreds after one of the attackers blew up himself.
" The casualties are very high. It is a shocking scene. It has taken even us officers aback, the detective who did not want his name revealed because he is not the communication authority said.
The attack is also said to be close to ending as Kenya Defence Forces Personnel close in on the remaining attackers.
