FBI: Kenya mall attackers believed to be dead

NAIROBI — The gunmen who attacked an upscale mall in Kenya's capital, killing at least 67 people, likely died in the attack, an FBI official has said.

Al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab militants claimed responsibility for the Sept. 21 attack on Nairobi's Westgate Mall. Al-Shabab said the attack was in retaliation of Kenya sending its troops to Somalia to fight the militants.

Dennis Brady, the FBI Legal Attache in Nairobi, said in an interview posted Friday on the bureau's website: "We believe, as do the Kenyan authorities, that the four gunmen inside the mall were killed."

"Our [Evidence Response Team] made significant finds, and there is no evidence that any of the attackers escaped from the area where they made their last stand," he said.

A very secure crime scene perimeter made an escape unlikely, he said.
