The Islamist terrorist group Al Shabaab  went house to house killing Christians in Kenya, International Christian Concern reported to Christian Today.

Three policemen were killed in a raid on Pandanguo village in Lamu county earlier this month. Terrorists later returned to the area to attack Christians in the villages of Jima and Poromoko.

“’If you were found to be a Christian you would be shot or slaughtered,” said Henry Divayo, the head pastor of a church sheltering Christians who fled the fighting.

“We are hosting more than 200 people in our church and we expect the number to increase as more families are evacuated from Boni Forest,” he added.

Food and security is currently being provided by the government and the Kenyan Red Cross, but more needs to be done.

“We need more well equipped police officers in churches, schools and hospitals,” he said.
