Kenyan Cardinal says more security is needed after massacre

(Vatican Radio)  The leader of the Catholic Church in Kenya, Cardinal John Njue, Archbishop of Nairobi, condemns the massacre of nearly 150 students at Garissa University by al-Shabab Islamic extremists and says more security is needed. Speaking in an interview with Susy Hodges, Cardinal Njue describes the killings as an extremely painful event but says the Catholic Church is doing all it can to promote reconciliation and calm the atmosphere.

Listen to the interview with Cardinal John Njue, Archbishop of Nairobi: 

The Kenyan cardinal expresses the hope that his compatriots can sit down at a table and discuss what made this massacre happen and try to ensure, not only that it never happens again but also that it does not provoke confrontation between Christians and Moslems. Asked about the risk of Kenyan youths becoming radicalized, Cardinal Njue said his “prayer and hope” is that young people can be “well-accompanied” and “never allow themselves to become instruments of destruction.”
