Kenya`s president on Saturday offered his "heartfelt thanks" to the United States for killing the leader of Somalia`s Shebab militants, responsible for the massacre at Nairobi`s Westgate shopping mall a year ago.
The African Union and Kenya asked the UN Security Council on Tuesday to defer the trials of Kenya`s leaders at the International Criminal Court for one year so they can deal with the aftermath of the Nairobi mall attack.
Pressure mounted on the Kenyan authorities a week after the Nairobi mall carnage, amid questions over the fate of the missing and accusations on Saturday that top brass failed to heed security warnings.
The Kenyan authorities are holding eight people in connection with a weekend attack on a Nairobi shopping mall, while three others who had been held have now been released, the interior minister said on Friday.
Investigators have recovered a vehicle believed to have been used by the terrorists who led the attack at a Nairobi mall that killed at least 67 people, a top Kenyan government official said on Friday.
The leader of the Somali Islamist militant group al Shabaab has warned that Kenya will be hit with more deadly attacks like the Nairobi mall massacre if it does not withdraw its troops from southern Somalia.
A British woman reportedly linked to the Nairobi mall attack gained a South African passport using an assumed identity and the document was cancelled in 2011, Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor said on Thursday.
One day after the terrible Westgate shopping mall crisis here was over, the Interpol issued a "Red Notice" for the arrest of Briton Samantha Lewthwaite, the widow of a 7/7 bomber, linked to militant group al Shabaab.
Assisted by FBI, Scotland Yard and spy agencies of Israel and Germany, Kenya has begun probe into invasion of a Nairobi mall that left at least 72 people dead, even as al Shabaab warned of more attacks.
