(Worthy News) - Al Shabaab extremists killed three Christian teachers in Kenya Monday, the attackers justifying the carnage by saying it was impermissible for 'infidels' to teach children.

The Somali extremist group that tends to conduct raids across the border in a predominantly Muslim region of Kenya came to the primary boarding school in Kamuthe early in the morning while teachers were sleeping.

“The Al Shabaab knew our residential rooms,” a Christian teacher who escaped said. “The attack is well planned. It is a conspiracy between the Al Shabbab and the local Muslim community.”

A fourth teacher was abducted and his whereabouts are currently unknown, according to those who escaped.

Al Shabaab killed 148 people at Garissa University College in 2015, but more recently separated out non-local Christians from a bus in northern Kenya on Dec. 6 and put them to death.

Kenya is only the 40th worst place to be a Christian, according to Open Doors USA, but as Islamic extremism metastasizes in Africa through the ISIS-linked Boko Haram and Al Qaida-linked Al Shabaab, Christians are increasingly becoming the target of jihad.
