43 killed at Kenyan mall; more carnage feared

Almost 24 hours after gunmen stormed an upscale Nairobi mall, spraying bullets and killing dozens, the terror wasn't over.

An unknown number of hostages were still holed up Sunday in parts of Westgate mall, Kenya's National Disaster Operation Centre tweeted.

"That is what we suspect. We cannot share any further information," the agency said.

At least 43 people have been killed in the attack, Kenya Red Cross chief, Abbas Gullet said Sunday. He said more than 200 others were wounded.

      Nothing to do with islam.
      These thugs of AlQaeda and Taliban kill indiscriminately and for money & arms. They have killed muslims in thousands praying at mosques at funerals at their holy shrines and everywhere.

      Both of you are wrong, the Quran preaches death to infidels and whether you see this as a holy war or jihad or not doesn't matter because Al Quaeda among other muslims have declared holy war (jihad) on western civilization in the name of Islam. Both of you are DELUSIONAL to say otherwise.

      The OT is full of the same teachings, Hamsta.

      And along came Jesus more than 2,000 years ago changing all that by saying "He who is without sin can cast the first stone." Come to think of it, the Muslim religion isn't even as old as Jesus and is based on the ramblings of a delusional child molestor. Islam isn't a religion, it's a CULT!

      The old covenant is part of the new covenant. They are part and parcel. You should take the words of Jesus seriously and let go of some of your hate. You seeth with it.

    So what does the historic first black president do to confront the global scourge of Islamic extremism? Immigrate millions of Somalis into the US and give them free stuff, while concurrently sequestering the military to the point it's incapable of response, like for example Benghazi. Coincidence that radical extremism soars to new heights under his watch? I think not.

      A President trying to stop religion? This is not within the scope of his job. If you are talking about immigration reform, that is the job of Congress, not the President. You know this, right?

      How right you are George, welcome to Oba-Me's America where a white, conservative Christian is considered a terrorist and Common Core forces your child to read the Quran, wear a burqa and refer to the 9/11 hijackers as freedom fighters. Welcome to Oba-Me's America where being successful is evil and hard work is rewarded with insanely high taxes and a healthcare package that forces your company to cancel your insurance and cut your hours to less than 30.

      What does Somalia have to do with this, anyhow? This is a story about Kenya.
      Hamsta: you amuse me in the same fascinating way two kindergarteners fighting in the sandbox does. Stop them , and they'll just go somewhere else to fight without learning anything.

    Lol @ rupert, thanks i was wondering about that too. And @ George, we've had imigrants from Somalia comming to this country for DECADES! You may as well admit you posted that simply because our prez is black and so are Somalians! Pretty pathetic reasoning on your part.

    As a matter of fact this country of ours was founded just for that reason! Letting suppressed individuals immigrate here. And our founding fathers did NOT care what color or race they were, they welcomed them all!
