Organised 'terror gang' behind Kenya mall attack: police sources
NAIROBI (AFP) - A well-organised "terror gang" is believed to be behind an armed assault on a Nairobi shopping mall, senior police sources told AFP, adding they had also detained one wounded suspect.
"This cannot be a normal robbery because all the survivors are saying how the group confronted them and opened fire," a senior police official told AFP on condition he remained anonymous.
"We have reports there were up to 10 or so attackers and they appeared to be wearing a similar outfit, and others covered their faces," another police official said.
"The pattern of the attack and the way they were speaking to their targets clearly point to a well-planned attack by a terror gang," he said.
