LONDON, September 30. (ITAR-TASS). The number of missing reduced to 39 people after the terrorist attack at the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, according to Britain’s Press Association news agency.
As of September 27, the list of missing persons included 59 people.
According to updated data from the International Red Cross, the number dropped after last weekend’s identification of bodies, and after it became known that several people considered dead in the terrorist attack at the mall came back home.
September 21, 2013, militants of the Al-Shabaab terrorist group attacked visitors of the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi (Kenya) and took about 30 hostages. According to official figures, at least 68 people were killed and about 300 injured. Al-Shabab announced that the raid in Nairobi was made in retaliation for Kenyan troops’ involvement in combat operations in Somalia.
Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen, or Al-Shabaab ("Mujahideen Youth Movement") originated in 2004 in Somalia as an armed wing of the Islamic Courts Union, which sought approval of Shariah courts’ authority in Somali.
