A well-organised terror gang numbering around 10 behind the assault

Masked attackers stormed a packed upmarket shopping mall in Nairobi on Saturday, spraying gunfire, killing 30 people and wounding dozens more before holing themselves up in the complex. The gunmen were “pinned down” after hours of painstaking evacuations, with the police going shop to shop to secure the Westgate shopping mall, a security source told AFP. “The attackers have been isolated and are pinned down in an area on one of the floors. The rest of the mall seems to be secure,” a security source told AFP at the scene.
