As everyone is aware, we have continued to conduct forensic investigations
for the past few weeks following the terror attack on Westgate Mall.
This week we recovered three bodies which we believe to be those of terror
suspects. Today, SundayÂ 20 October 2013, we recovered a fourth body, which
we know from CCTV footage to be that of a terrorist. DNA and other
investigations will confirm their identities.
We have also recovered four AK47 assault rifles which we know were used by
the terrorists in the assault. We also recovered 11 magazines of AK47
We continue to dig through the rubble at Westgate. We are determined to
bring this chapter to a close by identifying the terrorists responsible
for the attack, including those who planned it.
We wish not to comment on various reports on nationalities of the
terrorists until we complete forensic investigations.
