    Two Indians among 39 killed by Al Shebab militants

    Two Indians, including an 8-year-old boy, were among 39 killed and four other community members injured in the attack by armed terrorists on an upscale mall in Nairobi in Kenya.

    While one of the victims 40-year-old Sridhar Natarajan was working with a pharmaceutical firm, the boy Paramshu Jain was the son of a manager of the local Bank of Baroda branch, spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs said.

    Four Indians, including two women and a girl, were injured in the attack and are receiving medical treatment, the spokesperson said.

    India's mission in Nairboi is in touch with the families of the deceased, the spokesperson said.

    Masked gunmen had yesterday stormed the packed shopping mall, killing 39 people and wounding dozens others.

    Pakistani terror trainer behind Nairobi attack?

    A Pakistani-origin man is believed to be the security and training chief of Al Qaeda linked Shahab group that carried out the horrific attack at Westgate mall in Nairobi killing at least 59 people.

    security and training, the Long War Journal had said in a 2010 report.

    Kenyan troops were locked in a fierce firefight with Somali militants inside the Nairobi shopping mall today, in a final push to end a siege that has left 59 dead, including two Indians, and wounded 200 others with an unknown number of hostages still being held.

    Somalia's Al Qaeda-inspired Shebab rebels said the carnage at the part Israeli-owned complex was in retaliation for Kenya's military intervention in Somalia, where African Union troops are battling the Islamists.

    Meanwhile, the Twitter account of Somalia's Shabab rebels was suspended yesterday after they used the site to claim responsibility for the attack.

    However, the group seems to have launched a new twitter account @HSM-PressOffice.

    The Shabab's previous account, @HSMPress, was suspended in January after it posted photographs of a French commando they killed and threatened to execute Kenyan hostages.

    Not to be deterred, they opened another account, @HSMPress1, but were again suspended earlier this month after threatening Somalia's president.

    The group had issued a series of messages on Twitter yesterd

    Israeli forces enter Nairobi mall to end carnage: Report

    Israeli forces have joined Kenyan efforts to end a deadly siege by Somali militants at a Nairobi shopping mall, a security source told AFP Sunday.

    "The Israelis have just entered and they are rescuing the hostages and the injured," the source told AFP on condition he not be named.

    At least 59 people have been confirmed killed in the attack by Somali militants on an upmarket shopping mall in Nairobi, a government minister said on Sunday, as Kenyan troops battled gunmen still holding an unknown number of hostages.

    Heavy gunfire could be heard as Kenyan security officials said they were attempting to kill or capture the remaining attackers and end the 24-hour-long bloodbath at the Westgate mall.

    Gunfire as Kenya forces battle to end mall siege

    Kenyan troops backed by Israeli agents battled Sunday to end a siege in an upmarket shopping mall and free hostages held by Somali militants in an attack that has killed at least 59 people.

    Sporadic gunfire rang out as Kenyan security officials said they were trying to kill or capture the remaining attackers and end the 28-hour-long bloodbath at the Westgate mall.

    "The Israelis have just entered and they are rescuing the hostages and the injured," a Kenyan security source told AFP. The Israeli foreign ministry refused to confirm or deny its forces were involved.


    Somalia's Al Qaeda-inspired Shebab rebels said the carnage at the part Israeli-owned complex was in retaliation for Kenya's military intervention in Somalia, where African Union troops are battling the Islamists.

    Interior Minister Joseph Ole Lenku said 59 people were confirmed dead, while the Red Cross has estimated the number of injured at around 200, with 49 others missing.

    Lenku said there were still between 10 to 15 gunmen in the sprawling multi-storey complex but it was not clear how many people were still being held.

    Kenya Mall Shooting: 'Major Assault' Frees Most Hostages, Police Say

    Kenyan forces rescued "most" of the hostages held by terrorists in an upscale mall in Nairobi, after launching a "major assault" to put an end to the two-day long siege mounted by attackers who threw grenades and opened fire on unsuspecting crowds at an upscale mall in Nairobi, Kenyan police said.

    Most of the hostages have been rescued and security forces have taken control of most parts of the building," Kenyan police announced this afternoon.

    The death toll from the attack at the Westgate Mall rose from 59 to 68 people as nine more bodies were recovered in the rescue mission, the Kenya Red Cross said in a message on its Twitter account.

    Kenya's interior Cabinet secretary Joseph Lenku said at least 175 people were injured in the attack.

    Officials say there are at least 10 to 15 gunmen involved. Initially it was believed the gang were armed robbers but it soon became clear the attackers were only targeting non-Muslims.

    Indian shot when he couldn't answer query on Islam

    Joshua Hakim saw gunmen, some of whom looked to be teenagers, strapped with ammunition belts. They were carrying AK-47 assault rifles. "They were firing indiscriminately, they shot a lot of people," theguardian.com quoted him as saying Sunday.

    During a lull in the firing, the gunmen spoke in Swahili for Muslims to identify themselves and leave.

    Hakim covered the Christian name on his ID with his thumb and approached one of the attackers. He showed the plastic card.

    "They told me to go. Then an Indian man came forward and they said, 'What is the name of Muhammad's mother?' When he couldn't answer they just shot him," he said.

    sir it is continuing, some hostages are hold up by the terrorists.

    I must say that media management is better then what GOI did at the time of 26/11 attacks.

    Media was put back about 200 meters and they are not allowed to directly see the mall. That way they cant send the direct live feeds, which would help terrorists.
