Kenya attack mall to open up again

Kenyan officials say the city's Westgate Mall will re-open on Saturday, nearly two years after an attack there by al-Shabab extremists left at least 67 people dead.

The Westgate Mall has been largely refurbished since the devastating attack that led to a four-day siege by security forces.

The violence that erupted on September 21, 2013 when four militants entered the mall and began firing on civilians left the mall in shambles, with bullet-scarred walls, shattered windows and flooded floors.
