The stories about the massacre at the mall in Kenya are so horrible:
Survivors of the ongoing siege at an upscale mall in Kenya are describing moments of confusion and utter terror — including a woman who hid under mattresses in a store and an African journalist who watched a pregnant friend die.
Extended gunfire and at least seven large explosions resounded from the mall, in the capital city of Nairobi, on Monday as Kenyan security forces struggled to take control on the third day of the attack.
At least 62 people were dead, according to the Kenyan Red Cross. By late in the day Kenya time, the government said that it was in control most of the mall, but there was little evidence of that, and smoke rose from the complex well into the evening. It was not clear how many hostages, if any, were still inside, nor how many attackers.
