4 Somalis plead not guilty to attack on Kenya’s Westgate Mall

- The Washington Times - Monday, November 4, 2013

Kenya has charged four Somalis for cooperating in September's terrorist attack on Nairobi's Westgate Mall that killed 67 people.

Mohamed Ahmed Abdi, Liban Abdullah Omar, Hussein Hassan Mustafah and Adan Dheq pleaded not guilty to the charges, which include harboring a fugitive and illegally registering as a Kenyan, The Associated Press reported.

Kenyan authorities have detained dozens of people in connection with the attack, but it's unclear how many arrests have been made.

The three men were charged with knowingly supporting perpetrators of the mall siege. Mr. Dheq was accused of harboring terror suspect Abdikadir Hared Mohammed in a mosque in Nairobi's Somali neighborhood of Eastleigh, AP reported.

The four are due back in court next Monday.
