A brutal massacre occurred in a Kenyan village this summer that still has the entire country reeling.

In June, Muslim Somali militants went door to door asking residents of the village if they were Muslim or spoke Somali. Anyone who answered no to either question was shot dead on sight.

In total, 48 people were murdered during this brutal massacre in the coastal town of Mpetekoni. The victims were killed as they watched the World Cup in their homes.

“They came to our house at around 8pm and asked us in Swahili whether we were Muslims,” said local resident Anne Gathigi. “My husband told them we were Christians and they shot him in the head and chest.”

Another survivor described the 30 gunmen entering his home and killing his brothers because they couldnt speak Swahili.

“My brothers who stay next door to me were killed as I watched,” said John Waweru. “I was peeping from my window and I clearly heard them speak to my brothers in Somali and it seems since my brothers did not meet their expectations, they sprayed them with bullets and moved on.”

Police say the attack was launched by al-Shabaab, a Somali terrorist group that is linked to al-Qaida. Their motive is believed to be the Kenyan military presence in Somalia.

The terrorist group has launched multiple attacks against Kenya in the past year. In September of 2013, they attacked a crowded mall and killed 67 people.
