In Nairobi Attack, Search Continues for Trapped People
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - The militant group that attacked a mall in Nairobi, Kenya, now claims there are 137 hostages buried in the shopping center's rubble.
The group is tweeting that Kenyan government forces used explosives to level the building, burying the hostages.
Al-Shabab also claims the Kenyan government used chemical gases to end the siege. A government spokesman denies the claims.
