Recently at 12:01 Monday afternoon, more than an hour after a Kenyan government official said security forces had taken full control of the four-story building from terrorists. This caps of the 3rd day of the siege and the government doesn’t know if their are still hostages.  ” The Kenyan Red Cross said that 62 people had died since the Saturday attack by gunmen from the Somalia-based Al-Shabaab terror group. The agency had previously reported 69 deaths. Some bodies had been counted twice”, it said on Twitter. The terrorist are still on the run on the run all throughout the mall. Before the assault, terrorists were believed to have about 10 hostages on one level of the mall, security officials stated. The terrorist attack began at midday Saturday, Nairobi time, with an estimated 10 to 15 gunmen. A youth cooking competition was taking place in part of the mall at the time. Two attackers were killed Saturday. Witnesses said the gunmen went from store to store, shooting people, and then took hostages. I believe that its not fair and uncalled for people to take other innocent peoples lives for no reason.
