Witness: Kenya mall attackers target non-Muslims



JASON STRAZIUSOSeptember 21, 2013 9:32 AM

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Gunmen threw grenades and opened fire Saturday killing at least 10 people in an attack targeting non-Muslims at an upscale mall in Kenya's capital that was hosting a children's day event, witnesses said.
A local hospital was overwhelmed with the number of wounded being brought in hours after the attack, so they had to divert them to a second facility.
Elijah Kamau, who was at the mall at the time of the midday attack, said that the gunmen made a declaration that non-Muslims would be targeted.
"The gunmen told Muslims to stand up and leave. They were safe, and non-Muslims would be targeted," he said.
Manish Turohit, 18, said he saw gunmen with AK-47s and vests with hand grenades on them inside the mall before he escaped to hide in a parking garage for two hours.

Nairobi Mall Attack Signals the Rise of al-Shabaab

Sep 21, 2013 7:17 PM EDT
Al Qaeda’s Somalian affiliate has suffered major setbacks in its own country, but its deadly attack on a mall in Kenya Saturday shows its reach is widening. Eli Lake reports.

Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Somalia has suffered major setbacks in that country in the last year and a half. Saturday’s horrific attack on an upscale shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya shows al-Shabaab is not only alive but is capable of sowing mayhem outside the borders of the country it has fought over for nearly a decade.
The military-style assault Saturday at the Westlake Shopping mall in Nairobi was the first major al-Shabaab attack outside of Somalia since 2010 when the group set off bombs at multiple locations in Kampala, Uganda, killing more than 70 people who had gathered to watch the world cup.

“Since the beginning of 2012 al-Shabaab went from being a major governing entity in southern Somalia to losing its last stronghold in Kismayo,” said Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. “Similar to a number of other jihadist groups toppled from power, the group largely melted away in 2012. But it retained military capabilities.”

Just as is true here: In the midst of one's own misery, some folk might buy what anybody is selling, including making scapegoats out of complete strangers etc.

I. e., the gap between africa's less well off folk and better off folk, also reflects some folks preferred faiths....

Hence the rhetoric ad naseum some use to justify the unjustifiable...

Some folk of another faith or faiths claimed to be the Chosen People too...

Always remember/never forget that!

This may well be another case study of folks out to pit our african relations against each other...

As in, the less well off against the better off ones, i. e., yet another divide and conquer ploy...
