Kenya shopping mall attack

September 22, 2013

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.
