Nairobi: After the bloody massacre at Westgate mall attack left 67 people dead and dozens injured, terrorist group al Shabaab on Wednesday reportedly threatened that more such attacks will follow.

"We`re not done yet" was the message that the terror group handed over to the regional media, which was accessed by the CNN, as per a CNN news report.

The message came as the country is still trying to come to terms with the attack that took place on September 21 and continued for four days at an upscale Nairobi mall.

The officials are still digging through the debris as bodies of people are still feared to be trapped under the rubble.

As many as 16 armed assailants entered the upscale mall in Nairobi, lobbing grenades, firing automatic weapons, and holding some hostages.

The audacious attack is meant to punish Kenyans for their military`s intervention in Somalia in recent years.

As the attack unfolded, al Shabaab on Twitter said, "For long we have waged war against the Kenyans in our land, now it`s time to shift the battleground and take the war to their land".

This is not the first time al Shabaab has launched such an attack. In 2010, al Shabaab bombers had caused such carnage when they attacked bars and restaurants in Kampala, Uganda`s capital, on the night of the World Cup Final, killing over 60 people.
