Kenya Tightens Security For Nairobi Marathon After Mall Attack

Submitted by • October 24, 2013 zeenews.india.com

Nairobi: Kenyan police pledged today to boost security for the Nairobi marathon on Sunday, being staged just over a month since Al-Qaeda linked gunmen killed at least 67 people in a shopping mall.

Nairobi is still reeling from the four-day siege on the upmarket Westgate shopping mall by Somali militants, with security forces on high alert.

"We have taken this function very seriously, putting into consideration all the threats we have in the country right now," Nairobi deputy police chief Moses Ombati told reporters.
