There are 31 people confirmed dead in Saturday's attack at a Nairobi shopping mall, the Kenya National Disaster Operation Centre tweeted. "Bodies in the lobby area and ground floor to be removed," the organization added.
Several hours after the assault began, Al-Shabaab, an al-Qaeda-linked militant group based in Somalia, claimed responsibility for the bloodshed.
There were also 100 people injured, the official said.
As darkness fell in Nairobi, authorities said as many as 36 hostages are still being held by the gunmen in the mall...
Americans were also injured in the attack, said Deputy State Department Spokesperson Marie Harf.
But the group said "there will be no negotiations whatsoever" at the mall. The extremists also said on Twitter that "all Muslims inside #Westgate were escorted out by the Mujahideen before beginning the attack."

You know if I didn’t hate islam before, Hussein 0bama has guaranteed it!
And it’s happening right in Obama’s home town.
They need to take out ~20 mosques and imams in retribution.
This is a different kind of Al Qaeda from the guys we’re trying to help in Syria, right?
A bunch of extremists, I'm sure. A splinter group.
Note that splinter starts with the same letter as sarcasm.
Quite similar to:
"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
That Ben Ghazi guy just won’t shut up.
Coming soon to a mall near you...
Police: 39 people confirmed dead in hostage standoff at Nairobi, Kenya, mall
The death toll in a hostage standoff at a Nairobi mall has risen to at least 39 dead and 150 wounded, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta said in a televised address Saturday.
Is Drudge on vacation today? Anyway, if you see the videos CNN has been showing, it’s not just Africans who were in the Mall.
They need to just blow the innards out of the Terrorists just like the Nigerian Government has done to Boko Harum, only respoonse.
It’s friends of the O.
-— at least 39 dead and 150 wounded, -—
In this age of Islamic terrorism, concealed carry must be allowed. This won’t stop bombings, but it would minimize these kinds of attacks.
Clarification: I didn't mean to type "Saddam". Subconsciously did it.
Can we call this a WORLD RELIGIOUS WAR yet?
The war is over because they have one of their own in the White House.
A war, by definition, requires two sides. In attacks like this you have the guys with guns. And victims.
We stopped fighting back years ago. We are now in retreat. In a year, we will have effectively surrendered—or at least declared out neutrality.
