A survivor of the killings at Garissa University College was found today, two days after the attack by Islamic extremists killed 148 people, Kenyan medical staff said

Authorities rescued a survivor who had been hiding in the college since Thursday.

Cynthia Charotich, 19, said from her hospital bed today that she hid in a large cupboard and covered herself with clothes, refusing to emerge even when some of her classmates came out of hiding at the demands of the gunmen from the al Shabab group.

Kenyan officials said she was rescued shortly before 10am.

Ms Charotich said she did not believe that rescuers urging her to come out of her hiding place were there to help, suspecting at first that they were militants.
