The jihad gang of al-Shabaab attacked a shopping mall in Kenya
, holding hostages and murdering many people:
A major assault is ongoing against Al Shabaab gunmen in an attempt to end a siege in a shopping centre in Nairobi, Kenyan officials told the AFP news agency.
Up to 15 terrorists remain inside the centre after the attack left 68 people dead, including at least three Britons.
However the death toll could be "much, much higher" a police officer said, after reports from inside of multiple bodies.
The attack began when gunmen from the Islamist Shabaab group burst into the upmarket Westgate shopping centre yesterday afternoon armed with guns and grenades.
Unconfirmed reports suggest women as well as men took part in the attack.
Some of those killed were reportedly executed after failing to recite a Muslim prayer at gunpoint. Others were shot at the entrance to the mall as they tried to escape.
Truly repulsive. It's fortunate to learn that Israeli forces have joined the Kenyan authorities
to help defeat the jihadists there. Those terrorists still at large should be put to death for their repellent crimes.
