Three days after Islamist terrorists killed 148 people at Kenya's Garissa University, relatives of the deceased are still going through the long and emotionally draining process of attempting to identify the bodies.

At Nairobi’s main morgue, where the government has flown the remains of those slaughtered in Thursday’s massacre at Garissa University, some are finding it too difficult to even go inside.

"I can't go in there, I can't walk in there, because of what people are saying, that it’s terrible, I can't walk in there,” says Fanshaline Jebet, before breaking down in tears.

Paul Moijoi has been helping to identify his neighbour's body, alongside the deceased's family members. But another family is claiming the same body.

“Because of bodies which are inside there, to identify it was very hard,” he says. “I think especially it was affected by the grenade. So to identify even the face is too hard.”
