I fell to the ground and could hear screams,” said Lilian Omondi, who was leading a prayer meeting at the time. Blood-spattered Bibles and overturned plastic chairs and bullet casings lay strewn across the floor. The attackers tried to raid a second church nearby but fled when armed police on patrol in the area appeared. A top Interior Ministry official later said they had escaped, and there was no immediate claim of responsibility. MORE
