New photos taken after the deadly siege at Westlake Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, last week reveal more of the destruction Somali terrorists left in their wake after killing 67 people on what began as an ordinary day of shopping.
The team of terrorists who attacked the Westgate Mall in Nairobi last month may have been smaller than originally thought, according to multiple sources.
Based on reviews of security video from inside the mall, only four attackers have so far been seen.
Initial reports placed the size of the team that held off authorities for three days at nine to 12.
Still more attackers may be identified in addition to the four.
Two separate sources now say that the investigation shows no evidence of any white woman or any woman at all among the attackers.
So far, all have been identified by multiple sources as black African men, and one source adds they all appear to be Somalis.
A minute by minute review of retrieved video that has helped investigators reconstruct what went on inside the mall over those days is not yet complete, although a considerable amount of the video has been reviewed, sources said.
The attack and siege that followed left as least 67 people dead. The Kenyan Red Cross said 18 people believed to have been inside the mall at the time are still missing.
Al Shabab, a Somalia-based militant group and an offshoot of al Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the massacre.
