Legal Insurrection reported on last week’s tragic terror attacks in a mall in Kenya.

Now, The Harvard Crimson reports that one of its graduates, who was 8-months pregnant, was killed in the incident.

Elif Yavuz, a 2013 graduate of Harvard School of Public Health, was among dozens killed in a terrorist attack that began Saturday in Nairobi, Kenya, according to a statement by HSPH Dean Julio Frenk on the school’s website.

Yavuz, 33, and her partner were two of the victims who were killed when masked gunmen attacked civilians at the upscale Westgate shopping mall. The militant Somali group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the violence.

Yavuz, a Netherlands native who graduated from HSPH’s Department of Global Health and Population, had been working as a senior vaccines researcher for the Clinton Health Access Initiative. She was pregnant and expecting her first child in early October.

Harvard community members remembered the victims of the attack at a Monday evening vigil in front of Memorial Church.

Yavuz worked for the Clinton Foundation, was expecting a baby in just two weeks’ time with her partner, Australian architect Ross Langdon. The former First Family offered a statement on the loss:

Mr Clinton, his wife Hilary and their daughter Chelsea said in a statement that Ms Yavuz had devoted her life to helping others, “particularly people in developing countries suffering from malaria and HIV/AIDS”.
Elif Yavuz worked for the Clinton Foundation in Kenya, and in that role had been visited last month by former US president Bill Clinton.

“She had originally worked with our Health Access Initiative during her doctoral studies, and we were so pleased that she had recently rejoined us as a senior vaccines researcher based in Tanzania,” the statement said.

The Clintons said Ms Yavuz , 33, was brilliant, dedicated and deeply admired by her colleagues.

“On behalf of the entire Clinton Foundation, we send our heartfelt condolences and prayers to Elif’s family and her many friends throughout the world,” the statement said.
