(BBC) – Kenya’s interior minister has said security officers ignored intelligence reports prior to the attack on Garissa University College earlier this month.

Joseph Nkaisserry, who is in charge of security, also admitted that the response was poorly co-ordinated.

Militants from the Somali-based Islamist al-Shabab group killed 148 people during the day-long siege at the campus in the north-eastern town.

There has been much public criticism over the alleged security failings.

Correspondents say Nkaisserry’s admission is the boldest yet from the government, which has largely been defensive over the terror attack.
