Kenyans are up in arms about the New York Times coverage of the recent terror attack that took place at 14 Riverside Drive.

They are unhappy with the way the paper handled the reporting, by splashing gory images of some of the victims.

The paper defended itself with a lot of nonsense saying that that was was how it usually reported these types of incidences.

Twitter quickly suspended the account of the paper but it seems that the New York Times is standing by its questionable stand. The article is still up with the gory pictures being in it.

On this one, I stand with Kenyans and call the New York Times behaviour appalling. They never broadcast such images when Americans or European countries are the victims of terror.
