I received a call from my mother earlier today asking me whether I had heard of the attact at Westgate, or whether it was just a rumour. So, I checked the news, and sadly it was true. So far at least 22 people are said to be dead, and soldiers have moved in. My heart goes out to everyone who got caught up in this shooting, some have died, some taken hostage. It is horrific.
Here is some of the rescue operation in pictures.
Another sad day for Kenya.
Update: 11 people confirmed dead, and 29 admitted.
