NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) – Somali extremists Al-Shabab warn of more attacks in Kenya like the assault on Garissa college.

According to the SITE intelligence monitoring group, the Islamic militant group issued a statement Saturday which said the attack on Garissa University College was in retaliation for killings carried out by Kenyan troops fighting the rebels in Somalia.

The attack on the college in northeastern Kenya on Thursday killed 148 people.

Meanwhile, Kenyan medical staff say a survivor of the killings at Garissa University College was found today, two days after the attack.

The woman says she hid under clothing in a cupboard.

Also, a Kenyan official says that five people have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the attack on Garissa University College on Thursday in which 148 people were killed.

Interior Ministry spokesman Mwenda Njoka said in a Twitter post that security agencies arrested three people trying to cross into Somalia. He said the three are associates of Mohamed Mohamud, also known as Dulyadin Gamadhere, a former teacher at a Kenyan Madrassa Islamic school who authorities say coordinated the Garissa attack.

The three arrests bring the number of suspects arrested in relation to the attack to five as two suspects were arrested at the college.

Kenyan authorities have put a $220,000 bounty for information leading to Gamadhere’s arrest.
