Israeli Man Describes Horror of Kenya Massacre
Several Israelis were caught up in the terrorist massacre Saturday at a popular mall in Nairobi, Kenya, that left at least 39 people dead and over 150 wounded.
Yariv Keidar, 53, described his experience during the attack, and explained how he survived as others around him were gunned down.
“I was sitting and having lunch on the balcony of a coffee shop at the entrance to the Westgate Mall in central Nairobi,” he began. “It’s a very popular mall with the middle and upper classes, and it’s a nice meeting place.”
