The bodies of many of those killed by Islamist militants at a Kenyan university earlier today are being moved to the capital Nairobi for identification.

At least 147 people died when al-Shabab militants stormed the Garissa University in north-eastern Kenya, near Somalia.

Four of the gunmen involved were killed by security forces.

Police in neighbouring Uganda say the country is on high alert after receiving information that Al-Shabab was planning a similar attack there.
