No more than 6 Kenya mall assailants, 'white widow' not involved: Police
NAIROBI (AFP) - The Kenyan police said on Saturday that only between four and six armed men, not 10 to 15 as earlier thought, conducted the September attack on a Nairobi shopping mall that left 67 dead.
"From what we have now that is coming out of the investigation, the number of attackers was between four to six," police chief David Kimaiyo told Kenyan television station KTN.
"None of them managed to escape from the building after the attack," he said, implying that they were killed in the confrontation.
During the 80-hour siege that began on Sept 21, Kenyan officials said that between 10 and 15 gunmen were involved, and later claimed to have killed five of them.
