Kenya has begun three days of mourning for the 148 victims of an attack on students by militant group al-Shabab.

Easter ceremonies will be held to remember those who died in Thursday’s (April 2 ) attack on Garissa University, and flags are expected to fly at half-mast.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has vowed to respond to the attack “in the severest ways possible”.

Sunni Islam’s most respected seat of learning, Cairo’s al-Azhar University, has also condemned the attack.

The Kenyan Red Cross says that so far 54 of the victims have been identified by relatives at a morgue in the capital, Nairobi.
