Muslims shield Christian passengers in Kenyan bus attack

A GROUP of Kenyan Muslims likely saved the lives of Christian passengers by refusing to reveal who among them were Christians, as Somali militants attacked the bus they were on.

The BBC reports the Muslims told the militants "to kill them together or leave them alone", according to a local governor.

At least two people were killed in the al-Shabab attack, which occurred near the Somali border.

Earlier this year, Al-Shabab militants killed 148 people during an attack on a university after singling out Christians then shooting them while freeing many Muslims.

"The locals showed a sense of patriotism and belonging to each other," Mandera governor Ali Roba told Kenya's private Daily Nation newspaper.

He said the militants left the bus alone following the show of unity.
