[7 PHOTOS] Strathmore University drill goes horribly wrong

Terrified students were pictured crawling out of windows after gunshots were heard at  Strathmore university today

Witnesses say they heard the blasts at Strathmore University in Nairobi, sparking panic among some of the 5,000 students.

There were also reports that some students were injured in the melee.

However, the university has confirmed that all this was part of a terror drill.

The police also backed this up :

“It was a mock exercise,” Japheth Koome, a police commander said.

Both students and lecturers at the university were caught unawares in what is claimed to be a drill gone bad.
