In the shabby "Little Mogadishu" quarter of Kenya's capital, Somalis feared the militant attack on a Nairobi shopping mall could trigger a violent backlash against them.

Militant group al Shabaab said it carried out the raid on the Westgate centre, that killed at least 59 people, in revenge for Kenya's military campaign against its fighters in Somalia.
