Kenya Charges Four Over Mall Attack in Nairobi

All are ethnic Somalis

|

Nairobi — "The accused persons carried out a terrorist attack at Westgate Shopping Mall on September 21 by supporting a terrorist group," the charge sheet read.

The four, who are all ethnic Somalis, are Mohammed Ahmed Abdi, Liban Abdullah, Adan Adan and Hussein Hassan.

remanded in custody for one week after the prosecution asked for more time for further investigations.

All the gunmen in the Westgate attack—totalling just four, not the dozen that security forces had initially reported—are understood to have died during the four-day siege.

Interpol is assisting Kenya in trying to identify four bodies suspected to be the gunmen, police said last week.
