Kenya: At least 68 killed in assault claimed by Somali militant group al-Shabaab


Kenya’s armed forces say the hostage standoff has nearly ended at the Westgate mall in Nairobi, where militants attacked shoppers with guns and grenades on Saturday, killing 68 people, including at least two Canadians.

“Most of the hostages have been released, and the Kenya Defence Forces has taken control of most parts of the building,” Kenyan military spokesman Colonel Cyrus Oguna told the television station KTN. He did say how many hostages had been held or freed.

Another Canadian who died in the attack at the upmarket shopping centre has been identified by Vancouver-area family members as Naguib Damji.
