Report: Heavy, sustained gunfire from Kenyan mall under siege

Heavy and sustained gunfire was heard from the Kenyan shopping mall where at least 68 people were killed in an attack by the Somali al Shabaab group, suggesting a possible assault by Kenyan security forces, a Reuters witness at the scene said.


Kenya's military had earlier said on its Twitter feed that it was making every effort to bring the siege "to a speedy conclusion." (Reuters)
