Kenya Mall Attack Suspect ID'd

Hassan Abdi Dhuhulow, a Somali-born Norwegian man, has been named as a suspect in last month's deadly attack on a Kenyan mall—the first of the possibly four gunmen to be identified. Norway said last week it had received information that a Norwegian citizen of Somali origin may have been involved, and police sent an investigator to Kenya. According to relatives, the 23-year-old had taken so many long “vacations” back to Somalia recently that they couldn't remember the last time they spoke to him. The Somali militant group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the attack that killed 61. Two foot-long boxes of charred body parts and AK-47's recovered from the part of the mall that collapsed in the attack have been sent to the morgue to determine whether they may belong to the terrorists.
