Kenya Mall Attack Suspect ID'd

    A Kenyan soldier gives the thumbs up signal on September 24, 2013 after clearing the top floor balcony and interior of the Westgate mall in Nairobi. Al-Qaeda-linked Islamist militants, claiming they were still holding hostages, on September 24  battled Kenyan troops for the fourth day of a bloody siege at the mall and threatened further attacks against the country. Sporadic gunfire and a series of explosions at the upmarket Westgate shopping center rang out throughout the day, despite officials earlier claiming Kenyan troops had wrested back "control" of the sprawling complex from Somalia's Shebab insurgents, who are said to include Americans and a British woman. At least 65 shoppers, staff and soldiers have been killed and close to 200 wounded in the siege.         AFP PHOTO / CARL DE SOUZA        (Photo credit should read CARL DE SOUZA/AFP/Getty Images)

    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.
