(Nairobi) – The attack on a Nairobi shopping mall that killed at least 61 people and wounded hundreds was a horrendous act for which those responsible should be fully prosecuted, Human Rights Watch said today.

 

Kenyan authorities should take all necessary measures to protect vulnerable communities from potential retaliation.

RussellYCIS's insight:

Millitants in Nairobi's Westgate Shopping Centre-- they are unhappy about Kenyan intervention in Somalia. Is this an issue of Kenya infringing Somilia's soverignty? [TOPIC 1- Soverignty] the I hope all is resolved soon.

The Kenyan military forces only entered Somalia in "hot pursuit" of AL-Shabbab terrorists who had been attacking Kenya. The Kenyas were/are fighting Al-Shabbad, NOT Somalia.
