Caught On Camera-The Horrific Moment Of Kenya Mall Attack

This is the horrifying moment one of the terrorists in the Kenyan shopping centre attack levelled his gun at cowering hostages, ready to execute them.

The attacker, wearing a camouflage jacket and facemask, points a handgun at customers in a bank as they lie under a counter with their hands around their heads.
The CCTV pictures were taken inside the Diamond Trust Bank on the ground floor of the Westgate shopping mall in the early stages of the hostage crisis.

Another picture shows three fighters brandishing rifles at the entrance to the shopping centre, one of them apparently wearing  a traditional Islamic robe and pointing at a figure cowering  in the corner.
In other images, women and children are shown on the roof of the building among the blood-stained bodies of the dead and injured.
Other attackers took the time to divide Muslims from non-Muslims after demanding that some recite the Shahada, the Muslim profession of faith.
A man trapped inside the shopping centre told The Mail  on Sunday he had a clear view  of a woman brandishing a sniper rifle.
Achebe Odida, 42, a glass engraver, described how he hid under the counter of a mobile phone shop as the shooting began and raised his head to look out  of the window.
‘I saw a woman wearing a black headscarf and a black shawl over a pink top and black trousers,’ he said.
‘While shoppers were running and screaming through the mall, she moved slowly and calmly to take up position behind a pillar. She looked like a Somali woman, tall and slender with dark skin.’
He saw her brandishing the rifle as if to take aim, but did  not see her shooting anyone.
The Kenyans have yet to announce how many terrorists were involved in the atrocity. They say five were killed in  the shopping centre and it is unclear whether the eight people they currently have under arrest were detained at the scene  or elsewhere.
