Kenya Mall Terrorists Rented Shop Inside And Smuggled In Weapons To Prepare For Attack
September 25, 2013
Mall massacre terrorists 'rented out a shop inside the complex for three months and smuggled in weapons before the attack'
The Islamic militants who stormed the Kenyan mall rented a shop inside the complex apparently to store a cache of guns and explosives before the attack, it was claimed today.
The Kenyan Interior Ministry said the terror group may have had control of the store for three months leading up to the siege which has left as many as 72 shoppers dead.
Law enforcement officials believe the arsenal of weapons used in the atrocity were smuggled in, which suggests they may have been kept inside the shop during that time.
The claims were made as Kenya began a forensic investigation inside the mall with the help of British counterparts to establish the identities of the victims and terrorists.
There is a possibility that UK nationals may be found in both groups.
