The group said the shambles was a direct retaliation for Kenya’s military intervention in Somalia where African Union troops are battling the Islamists. On its own twitter account, Al-Shabab said it had “on numerous occasions warned the Kenyan government that failure to remove its forces from Somalia would have severe consequences”.

On a televised address to the nation, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta confirmed that he had “personally lost family members in the Westgate attack”, but said the country had “overcome terrorist attacks before, and we will defeat them again. They want to cause fear and despondency in our country, but we will not be cowed,   Terrorism is a philosophy of cowards.
