Sixty-eight dead. At least 175 injured. About 30 hostages still inside, as well as perhaps a dozen gunmen.
Those are the grim numbers, more than a day after Islamist attackers stormed an upscale Nairobi mall on Saturday, spraying bullets and holding shoppers captive.
The tense standoff continued into Sunday night, with sporadic gunfire heard through the day and at least one explosion.

Coming to a suburb near you.
Just in time for the holidays.
... Gun free suburb
“Coming to a suburb near you.
Just in time for the holidays.”
It may well happen — there seem to be lots of AlShabaab/Al Qaeda terrorists in the US also.
NY Rep. King: Al-Shabab Recruited in US
“A member of the House Homeland Security Committee says the al-Qaida affiliated group behind the deadly attack on an upscale shopping mall in Kenya recruited up to 50 people from Somali American communities in the U.S.”
...and how many more that we don’t know about?...
I’m surprised CNN actually identified them as Islamist. I figured they would be referred to as teens, or flash mobbers.
Sounds much like another Mumbai-style group terror attack. Mumbai was on 26 November of 2008, almost 5 years, coincidental?
Remember, the attacker can look at many targets and select time and place of the attack and concentrate his forces for that occasion. The defenders must monitor all targets, not be distracted or get bored and respond instantly wherever and whenever the attack comes.
Shopping areas, malls, transportation hubs and sporting venues are security nightmares all over the world!
By the way. Kenya is safe, guns are outlawed in the hands of her citizens.
My daughters 11th grade history book describes the terrorists of 9/11 as “Arabs”. Never a word about “Muslims” and never referred to as “terrorists”. Thank goodness my daughter knows better.
Is this for Trayvon?
In other news today, U.S. President Obama stepped up his rhetoric in support of the Al Quaida rebels in Syria, pledging that he would do “whatever it takes” to ensure their success in overthrowing the Assad regime. (s)
someday (after USA recovers from its take-over by the Muslim Hros.), the entire world is going to have to tell these Islamicists to knock off the krap or get same beat the hell out of them once and for all
kissing A and all the PC in the world will NOT solve the problem of Muslim aggression, terrorism, violence....
Success copies success. Al Shabaab has Somali supporters in the USA. No good turn goes unpunished.
A chilling tweet I found on rt.com
“our mujahideen are all under 25 years old. 7 of them having completed training in black water facility in north california! #Westgate”
This is a pretty big story. Why does Drudge refuse to report it on his site? Can’t find a trace of it anywhere.
Impossible. Islam is a religion of peace.
Have you and your daughter read “The Harbinger?”
Very interesting parallels with 9/11 and Israeli hisitory.
