Kenya lawmakers probe

mall massacre

Kenyan lawmakers investigating alleged security failings during the deadly assault on Nairobi's Westgate mall by Islamist gunmen were due to meet, as leaders gathered to commemorate the 67 killed.

Politicians from both parliament's national security and defence and foreign relations committees visited the mall on Monday afternoon, picking their way through shattered glass and pools of congealed blood in the main hall. The four-day bloodbath at the upmarket shopping mall was brought to an end by Kenyan forces last Tuesday. The Red Cross on Monday said the number of people still unaccounted for stood at 39.AFP
