A Kenyan policeman secures the road past the Westgate Shopping Centre in the capital Nairobi, September 23, 2013. Heavy and sustained gunfire was heard from the Kenyan shopping mall where at least 68 people were killed in an attack by the Somali al Shabaab group, suggesting a possible assault by Kenyan security forces, a Reuters witness at the scene said.

Kenya shopping mall attack

Terrified shoppers huddled in back hallways and prayed they would not be

found by the Islamic extremist gunmen lobbing grenades and firing

assault rifles inside Nairobi's top mall on Saturday Sept. 21, 2013.

When

the coast was thought to be clear, crying mothers clutching small

children and blood-splattered men sprinted out of the four-story mall.
