” Latest reports from inside the besieged Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi suggest that the Somali al-Shabaab militants who laid siege to the mall on Saturday continue to occupy the building, and have taken an unknown number of hostages.

Overnight, Somalia’s al-Qaida-linked rebel group, al-Shabaab, claimed responsibility for the attack, in which they targeted non-Muslims.

Fifty-nine people are thought to have died so far, and many more have been injured.”
