New York Times Account Suspended After Kenyans Go Berserk Following Publishing of Photos of Dead Bodies

Kenyans online went wild after the New York Times published images that show dead victims of the terror attack at Dusit complex in Westlands, Nairobi.

The image showed bodies strewn inside the Secret Garden Café.

The anger was palpable as social media users in Kenya took to Twitter and asked the US-based paper to remove the photo.

New York Times writer Kimiko de Freytas-Tamura, who is said to be the incoming New York Times bureau chief for East Africa, asked Kenyans to direct their anger to the photo desk and not her.

This infuriated Kenyans more forcing them to apologies. The apology seemed half hearted though.

“As I’ve said, I don’t choose the photos. Please direct your anger to our photo department. Thank you,” she responded to one of the tweets.
