Fresh Gunfire From Kenya Mall On Sunday Morning 10 To 12 Attackers Toll Reaches 59 And 30 Hostages Still Inside

A barrage of gunfire erupted on Sunday morning from the upscale Kenyan mall where there is a hostage stand-off with Islamic extremist attackers, according to Associated Press journalists at the scene.

Moments later two wounded Kenyan security forces were carried out of the Westgate shopping mall.

Kenyan authorities said Islamic extremist attackers held an unknown number of hostages in the shopping center located in the Westlands area of Nairobi, after killing at least 39 and injuring 150 on Saturday.

Somalia’s radical rebel group, al-Shabab, claimed responsibility for the attack in which they specifically targeted non-Muslims.
