On December 20, 2015, a bus carrying 60 passengers from Nairobi to Mandera in Kenya was stopped by Islamist militants. Fearing for the lives of the Christian passengers, the Muslim women offered scarves to the Christian women for them to cover their heads.
When the militants ordered the passengers to get off the bus and to segregate themselves, Muslims on one side, Christians on the other, Salah Farah, a Muslim teacher responded, “Kill us all or leave us alone.” The Christians were untouched, but Salah was shot. He died some days after from the gunshot. For his bravery, he was posthumously honored by the Kenyan government.
