Kenyan police released on Sunday (October 6) Closed-circuit television footage (CCTV) of two men suspected of taking part in the raid last month on a Nairobi shopping mall in which at least 67 people were killed. Al Qaeda-linked group al Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the assault two weeks ago on the Westgate centre, 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 television station reported that Kenya's Anti-Terrorist Police Unit had identified the two men in the images as Abdikadir Haret Mohammed also known as Mohammed Hussein and Adan Dheg also known as Hussein Abdi Ali or Abdulahi Subow. The suspects were captured by the CCTV camera entering a Nairobi bank on September 6 to make payment on a car that was later used in the mall attack, KTN reported the police as saying. Kenya has said as many as 15 militants took part in the raid and the authorities were holding nine of them. The government said five of the attackers were killed, but survivors say some may have escaped.
