While Hillary Clinton’s claim that Trump was “ISIS’s best recruiter” may not have been totally verifiable a few weeks ago, she didn’t have to wait long for that to change. A newly released video from Al Shabab—Somalia’s resident Al Qaeda affiliate—uses footage of Trump spouting deeply Islamophobic rhetoric as a direct recruitment tool for its terrorist organization.
al-Shabab gunmen led a rampage on the Garissa University College campus in eastern Kenya Tuesday morning, killing at least 15 people and taking an unknown number of hostages. The National Disaster Operation Center of Kenya told the New York Times that 65 people were admitted to a local hospital, “most with gunshot wounds.”
At least 25 people were killed and 40 more wounded in a pair of suicide bombings perpetrated yesterday in Mogadishu, Somalia, the New York Times reports. The attack was carried out by a rebel group, Al Shabab, who claimed to have targeted government officials gathered at a hotel for a prayer service.
