NAIROBI | Kenya’s government said a Sudanese man trained by al Qaeda was among the leaders of a raid on a Nairobi shopping mall in which at least 67 people were killed, the worst attack in the country in 15 years.
Al Qaeda-linked group al Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the assault two weeks ago on the Westgate center, saying it was an act of revenge for Kenya’s military campaign in Somalia, but the identities of the gunmen have remained unclear.
A Kenyan military spokesman on Saturday named four of the attackers, saying they also included a Kenyan Arab and a Somali.
Closed-circuit television footage from the Westgate mall was broadcast on Kenyan television channels that appeared to show four men with guns walking around the mall’s supermarket and a storage room.
Major Emmanuel Chirchir, the spokesman for the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF), named the four as Abu Baara al-Sudani, Omar Nabhan, Khattab al-Kene and Umayr.
