Terrorists take credit for Kenya mall attack

This Just In

Armed gunmen waged a tense standoff with Kenyan police and soldiers inside an upscale Nairobi shopping mall early Sunday, hours after brazenly gunning down shoppers, diners and more.

Bodies still littered the lobby and ground floor of the Westgate Mall more than 10 hours after the attack began, according to the Kenya National Disaster Operation Centre. And with gunmen dug in and an unknown number of innocent civilians — perhaps dead or being held hostage — still unaccounted for, there are fears the carnage will get even worse.

There were 39 confirmed dead as of around midnight Saturday, according to Kenya’s president, who added his close relatives are among those killed. Two gunmen, including one who was detained after being shot, are also dead.
