Kenya court finds two guilty in deadly Westgate mall attack

A Kenyan court has found two men guilty of helping al-Qaeda-linked fighters launch a 2013 assault on a Nairobi shopping mall where gunmen massacred at least 67 people.

A third man, who also faced charges under the country’s terrorism-prevention act, was acquitted on all charges.

The judgment, announced on Wednesday, comes more than seven years after gunmen from the Somalia-based armed group al-Shabab carried out the attack.

Since 2011 the rebel group has vowed retribution on Kenya for sending troops to Somalia.
