In the video men in fatigues pick items from behind counters. Others are seen walking out of a store inside the mall holding plastic bags heavy with unknown items.

Kenya's security forces have previously denied any wrongdoing. Soon after the attack began on September 21, Kenyan officials put a security cordon around the mall, allowing only security forces and a few government personnel to pass through. When the siege was over, some who owned shops inside the mall complained of looting.

Scores of people were killed in the four-day siege claimed by the Somali terrorist group al-Shabab.
