Mass arrests, extortion, deportation and suspicion: one year since Somali gunmen staged a four-day massacre in Nairobi`s Westgate mall, Somalis in Kenya say the attack has left their community battling harassment and denigration.
Kenyan security forces walked out of a store in Nairobi`s Westgate Mall, holding plastic bags heavy with unknown items after Islamic extremists staged an attack. Others looked behind counters and lifted items.
The Kenyan government has said that the four bodies recovered from the Westgate shopping mall were of the terrorists who were behind the deadly attack Sep 21. Over 70 people were killed and more than 200 injured.
A military spokesman on Saturday confirmed the names of the four fighters implicated in the attack on the upscale Westgate Mall in Kenya`s capital last month, an assault that turned into a four-day-long siege, killing at least 67 people.
Kenya`s military caused the collapse of three floors of the Westgate Mall in the deadly terrorist siege, a top-ranking official disclosed, while the government urged patience with the pace of an investigation that has left key questions unanswered.
