Kenya: Mall Siege Continues as Fresh Gunfire Erupts
As officials in Kenya reported the Westgate Shopping Mall was in their hands, new heavy gunfire has erupted inside the mall on Tuesday.
Earlier in the day Kenyan authorities said the siege on the mall was very nearly over. Meanwhile Al Shabaab, an Al-Qaeda-linked Somalian group behind the attack, has claimed its gunmen were still at large in the shopping center "amid countless dead bodies."
