Two of the three suspects Mohamed Ahmed Abdi and Hassan Hussein Mustafa were found guilty on Tuesday of “conspiracy” for terrorist action and “support” after aiding five, now deceased gunmen in a violent attack launched on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya in 2013

The three suspects appeared before Chief magistrate Francis Wandayi at the Milimani Law Court on Wednesday to face at least 12 counts among the commission of a terrorism act, being in possession of stolen items, and being in the country illegally.

The first and second suspects Mohammed Abdi and Hassan Mustafa were found guilty of the crimes, while a third suspect, Liban Omar has been acquitted of charges.

The three suspects appeared before Chief magistrate Francis Wandayi at the Milimani Law Court on Wednesday to face at least 12 counts among the commission of a terrorism act, being in possession of stolen items, and being in the country illegally.

Seven years ago on September 21, four Islamist extremists hailing from al-Shabab the rebel group linked to al-Qaida, which vowed retribution on Kenya in 2011 for sending troops to Somalia, stormed the luxury Nairobi mall that resulted in the death of around 67 people with numerous others both injured and traumatized before Kenyan security forces eventually took the attackers down in a terrifying standoff.
