NEW YORK, Sept 24 U.S. officials are talking to
Kenyan officials to try to determine whether any Americans were
involved in a deadly attack at a shopping mall in Nairobi,
Kenya, a senior Obama administration official said on Tuesday.
There have been U.S. news reports that a small number of
Americans or U.S. residents might have been among the
perpetrators of a weekend assault that killed dozens at
Nairobi's Westgate mall.
The Obama official, asked about those reports, said it is
"something we are talking to the Kenyans about."
"We are in communication with the Kenyan authorities and
working to establish what we can about any American
participation," the official told reporters on the fringes of
the U.N. General Assembly.
