Kenyan forces in control of Westgate mall

Kenyan security forces say they are in control of the Nairobi shopping centre stormed by al-Shabab militants.

The Kenyan Red Cross says 62 people died in the attack while nearly 200 were injured.

63 more remain unaccounted for.

Between 12 and 15 militants stormed the Westgate centre on Saturday. Kenyan authorities say that 10 militants have been arrested.

Al-Shabab has said it carried out the attack in retaliation for Kenyan military operations in Somalia and Kenya's foreign minister has said "two or three" Americans and a British woman were among the attackers.

Amina Mohamed told PBS Newshour that the Americans were of Somali or Arab origin, 18 or 19 years old, and lived "in Minnesota and one other place".
