Kenyan court to rule on shopping mall attack case


A court in Kenya is set to pass judgement in the case of three men charged with helping armed militants launch an attack on a shopping mall the capital, Nairobi, in 2013.

At least 67 people died in the assault on the upmarket Westgate shopping complex.

Somalia-based Islamist militants al-Shabab said they carried out the attack. The state said the attackers involved were dead.

More than 140 witnesses testified in the case, in which the accused persons denied conspiring to commit terrorism.

A conviction will encourage a country that remains on high alert over possible terrorist attacks, and whose military is still in Somalia fighting al-Shabab from their bases.
