Twitter rages over poor media coverage of 147 Kenyan university students' massacre

Many people have taken to Twitter to condemn the poor media coverage of the killing of almost 150 students of the Garissa University College, Carissa, Kenya, by Somali al-Shabab militants.

Many people have taken to Twitter to condemn the poor media coverage of the killing of almost 150 students of the Garissa University College, Carissa, Kenya, by Somali al-Shabab militants.

The militants on Thursday morning stormed the schooled and hunted down Christian students in what al-Shabab called an “operation against the infidels” in a Thursday statement.

Described as the worst terrorist attack in Kenya since the 1998 bombing of the United States Embassy and the September 2013, Westgate mall attack that left 67 people dead and several others injured, the students' killings has left the country shaken and the world concerned.

World leaders, including US President Barrack Obama, the Catholic Pope and Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan, have joined in the condemnation of the attack.

Some people have however strongly criticised the media of not giving the Carissa massacre the same attention that followed the Charlie Hebdo killings.

Here are some of the tweets:
