More bodies to be retrieved from Nairobi mall

Nairobi, Oct 2 : Investigators in Kenya said they were expecting to retrieve more bodies from the Westgate shopping mall which was stormed by terrorists Sep 21 leaving over 60 people dead and dozens injured.

Security officials Wednesday said there were still more bodies trapped in the rubble, Xinhua reported.

"We retrieved a gun and two bodies of the Kenya Defence Forces soldiers Tuesday who were killed during the four-day siege. Search is still under way and some bodies are still in the site," an official told Xinhua requesting anonymity.

"The retrieval of more bodies still trapped in the site have been hampered by the amount of debris. This task will take us longer," he added.

"One of the bodies was severely burnt but the boots and lower part of the body were found intact," the official said.

According to the Kenya Red Cross Society, the number of missing people reported after the attack has reduced to 39.
