Four fighters identified as Kenya mall attackers

KENYA'S military spokesman has confirmed the names of the four fighters implicated in the attack on the upscale Westgate Mall in Kenya's capital last month, an assault that turned into a four-day-long siege, killing at least 67 people.

Major Emmanuel Chirchir said the attackers were Abu Baara al-Sudani, Omar Nabhan, Khattab al-Kene and Umayr, names that were first broadcast by a local Kenyan television station.

"I confirm those are the names of the terrorist," he told The Associated Press on Saturday.

The identities of the men come as a private television station in Nairobi obtained and broadcast the CCTV video from the Nairobi mall.

Calmly searching corners of the mall - possibly hunting for more victims after executing scores in the main hall of the upmarket complex - the video shows four young men ambling around with AK-47 rifles in hand.
