Militants hold out as Kenya forces try to crush cross-border jihad

News breaks in Kenya that the end is in sight as Islamist fighters from Somalia's al Shabaab are still holding out at a Nairobi shopping mall after killing at least 62 people. It remains unclear how many fighters and hostages are still cornered in the Westgate shopping center. The Interior Ministry said on Twitter it was "in control" of the mall and believed all hostages had been freed. The siege has followed a pattern of bursts of gunfire and activity followed by long lulls. By nightfall the mall was quiet after a day in which the flow of survivors escaping the complex slowed to a trickle.
