Kenya court convicts two for helping deadly jihadist attack on shopping mall

By Humphrey Malalo and George Obulutsa

NAIROBI (Reuters) – A Kenyan court convicted two men on Wednesday for helping al Qaeda-linked gunmen storm Nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall and kill at least 67 people in a 2013 assault that proved Somali militants could strike at the heart of the capital.

The attack on the upscale mall – a favourite with the country’s growing middle class and foreign workers – came two years after the East African nation sent troops into Somalia following a series of kidnappings and raids on Kenyan soil.

A third defendant, also charged under a national terrorism prevention act, was acquitted in the trial, the only prosecution Kenya mounted over the assault by Somali al Shabaab militants.

Four gunmen died during the attack in one of the most secure areas of the Kenyan capital, and it has never been proven that there were any others who escaped.

Kenyan court finds two men guilty for roles in 2013 shopping mall attack

NAIROBI (Reuters) – A Kenyan court on Wednesday found two men guilty of helping al Qaeda-linked militants launch a 2013 assault on a Nairobi shopping mall in which gunmen killed at least 67 people.

A third man who also faced charges under the country’s terrorism prevention act was acquitted on all charges.

The trial is the only prosecution Kenya has mounted so far over the attack by gunmen from the Somali militant group al Shabaab on Nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall, at the time seen as a symbol of the East African country’s growing prosperity.

It was the worst attack by Islamist militants in Kenya, apart from the al Qaeda bombing of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.

“The prosecution has proved its case against the accused on charges of conspiracy of committing a terrorism act and supporting a terrorist group,” Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi said as he

Two jealous women have been spared jail after carrying out a “shocking” attack involving high heel shoes on their ex-boyfriends’ new partners.

Chloe Morris and Kelsey Darby, both 24, attacked their exes’ new girlfriends outside the Black Swan pub in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, on 7 December 2018.

The pair, both from Nuneaton, admitted wounding and assault when they appeared at Warwick Crown Court on Monday.

They verbally abused Jessica Earp and Jodie Westwood, who were in new relationships with their ex-boyfriends, inside the pub, calling them “tramps” and “slags” before staff intervened.

After being ordered to leave, Morris and Darby waited outside the pub and shouted abuse at the two women through the window.
