A bus attack Monday by Al Shabab in northeast Kenya got rebuffed by passengers who bravely refused to divide into Muslims and Christians. Kenyan Somalis are forced to take civic responsibility for local education and schools.

Somalia-based Al Shabab claimed responsibility for the attack on a miners' camp in northern Kenya. The group continues to menace Kenya, which has sent troops into Somalia as part of an international peacekeeping effort.
The attack on Thursday night follows Al Shabab's brief takeover of a mosque in the area, which borders Somalia, the base for the militant group.

Al Shabab militants murdered 147 people, mostly Christian students, at a university in Garissa, in northeast Kenya on Apr. 2. Church leaders offered prayers Sunday for the fallen, as some worshippers stayed away.
