Kenya terrorists rented shop in the mall: reports
The shop also let them set up a defensible positions and allow them to resupply easily, the BBC reports, citing senior security sources.
Officials had previously said they stored belt-fed machine guns in the mall with the help of a colluding employee.
The BBC suggests that the only way the terrorists could have rented the shop was with fake IDs obtained from corrupt officials.
The terrorists weren’t behind all of the destruction at the mall, however.
Kenya’s military caused the massive collapse of three floors of Nairobi’s Westgate Mall during the terrorist siege in which at least 67 people died, a top-ranking government official told The Associated Press.
