SAS HERO SAVES OVER 100 PEOPLE AT WESTGATE SHOPPING MALL – According to reports the original photograph of a man leading a woman and young lady out of the Kenyan Westgate Shopping Mall was not the woman’s husband or family member but rather an off-duty SAS soldier.
Looking closely at the photograph you can spot a handgun tucked into his belt and eye witnesses describe how the unidentified soldier re-entered the Westgate Shopping Mall no less than 12 times; resulting in saving over 100 lives.
Eye witnesses described the scene prior to the terrorist attack where all was calm and that it was a normal shopping day with families and friends getting together. It was reported that the off-duty SAS soldier was having coffee when the terrorists stormed the building.
The SAS soldier, who cannot be named or identified for security reasons, was pictured with victims leaving the building. Despite intense gunfire and grenades exploding he continued to go in and out of the building to save as many lives as possible.
“What he did was so heroic. He was having coffee with friends when it happened.
He went back in 12 times and saved 100 people. Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.” Friend of SAS Soldier
Sources have confirmed that he was indeed a member of the Special Air Service (SAS) but cannot be named or indentified for reasons of security. The SAS regularly train in and operate out of Kenya in order to track down hard-line Islamic terrorists in Somalia and Yemen; one of their primary objectives is to track down UK citizens who are involved in Islamic terrorism.
Last night Kenyan authorities were unable to determine exactly how many terrorists were hole-up in the Westgate Shopping Mall but did say that all exits have been covered and that there was no way out for the terrorists.
During the late evening, security forces noticed black plumes of smoke rising from the building and there were reports of explosions. The Kenyan authorities reported that the explosions were security forces blasting their way in whilst the black smoke was likely to be the work of the terrorists.
It is estimated that some 1,200 people were inside the Westgate Shopping Mall when it was attacked and with the terrorists trapped inside, the Kenyan authorities are bracing themselves from possible further attacks outside; as it was discovered that several militant groups had bribed their way across the Kenyan border late yesterday.
A spokesman for the Al Shabab terrorist group told reporters that all British nationals within Kenya are legitimate targets due to the British Government supporting Kenya’s role in military action in Somalia.
News of British victims includes a mother and her 9 year old daughter. The father learned last night that both his wife and daughter had been murdered in the attack.
Louis Bawa, 43, father of 9 year old daughter, Jennah, and husband of Zahria, 41 were among the victims; the father told reporters that these terrorists were nothing more than ‘animals’ and that taking the lives of innocent people can never achieve anything.
The Kenyan authorities have retaken the Westgate Shopping Mall after a three day siege and are reporting to have regained control. So far the death toll has been recorded at 60 people being killed with many more being injured.
