6 suspects involved in Kenya mall attack

At least six people have been singled out for their involvement in last month's Westgate mall attack –and that number is expected to double once the investigation is complete, a senior Kenyan government official said.

Previously, a spokesman for the Kenya Defense Forces identified four terrorists who took part in the mall attack, which left at least 67 people dead. Those four are Khattab al-Kene, an American Somali; Abu Baara al-Sudani, from Sudan; Omar Nabhan, from Kenya; and a man identified only as Umayr.

The senior government official said there was also a woman identified as Somali whose body was found with a mounted gun. The official said the woman was responsible for single-handedly killing more than 30 people.

    Failed US Navy Seal raid on AlShabab in Somalia showcases the folly committed by not taking similar action to nip the problem in the bud when instead we instead staged full scale invasions of Iraq & Afghanistan.

    The 12th year of this 'war on terror' is witness to the expansion of AlQaeda and its franchise.

    We have alienated population in entire regions by our actions during this period and that aids AlQaeda. What an irreversible and unforgivable policy direction.

    As one can see, Jeff Roem steals people's names and writes his game plan for cheating businesses because he is too cheap to pay for his products and services.

    One more thing, sweetie. You might want to tone it down. Your choice of words. There may be toddlers on the internet. You really don't wanna set a bad example do you?
    Good night honey.
