"The hostage situation is still going on with a unknown number of people still trapped inside Westgate and Kenyan police and military in the area. Meanwhile Al-Shabaab has released the names and places of origin of the alleged terrorist involved in the Westgate assault. It is no surprise the terror raid was carried out by a international terrorist cell of at least twelve Al-Shabaab fighters, some of which were at least raised in the West.
According to the terrorist group the attackers all between the age of 20 and 27 years old, are from numerous countries, including the US, UK, Canada, Sweden, Finland, Syria and Russia and where all trained in Somalia.
The strategy of the “Mumbai Style Attack” reflects Al-Shabaab´s effort to carry out an attack outside of Somalia where the group faces huge challenges and suffered military defeat on various occasions.Per Gudmundson skriver om den finske jihadisten:
"Den tyske journalisten Florian Flade skriver på sin blogg Jih@d att al-Shabaab bland andra nämner en "Ismail G., from Helsinki, Finland".
Enligt uppgifter i brittisk press ska hela attacken ha planlagts och styrts av konvertiten "Vita änkan" från England:
"Kenyan anti-terror police revealed yesterday that Lewthwaite – who is known to many as the White Widow – may be the brains behind the operation to bring terror to the heart of Kenya, a country once synonymous with the sexual high-jinks of the Happy Valley expatriate set, but rapidly becoming a new battleground in the war between Islamists and the West. ‘I suspect this woman Lewthwaite is behind this attack,’ a senior anti-terror source told me last night as survivors described how a woman in a veil appeared to be commanding the other terrorists as they hunted down and killed non-Muslim shoppers."
