Using the hashtag #147NotJustANumber, they are sharing stories of some of those killed in the attack on Garissa University College.

At least 79 other people were also injured in the attack by militant group al-Shabaab, the Kenya National Disaster Operation Center said.

The militants are believed to have deliberately targeted Christians, prompting security officials to patrol a church in the city as crowds gathered on Easter Sunday, the Associated Press reported.

One of the four gunmen in the attack is believed to be the son of a Kenyan government official, Reuters reported Sunday.

Here are some of people who are being named as victims on Twitter:
