Off-duty officer saved lives during Kenya mall massacre

AN off-duty member of Britain's special forces reportedly helped save a hundred lives as terrorists launched their attack on a Kenyan shopping mall.

The Daily Mail reports sources as crediting the soldier as a hero of the Nairobi siege after intervening with a handgun as his only weapon.

The soldier was reportedly having coffee at the Westgate mall when it was attacked by a group of 10 to 15 terrorists.

His story emerged after he was photographed - gun tucked into his pants - helping to guide two women away from the carnage.

He is said to have then returned to the building which was ringing with intense gunfire.
