Nairobi Westgate Tragedy, three days of national mourning

Glory be to God, the prayers of each and everyone have had their fulfillment. As announced by the President of the Republic of Kenya, His Excellency Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta, the tragedy of Westgate is ended.
The four-day siege at Nairobi's Westgate shopping centre is over.
In a televised address to the nation, Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta said five attackers were shot dead by troops and 11 suspects are in custody.
Three days of national mourning have been declared starting on Wednesday.
President Kenyatta said that several bodies lying under rubble from collapsed parts of the building were still to be recovered.

While praising God for his assistance and relief, let us remain in prayer, united with those who have lost loved ones, those who are injured and those traumatized by this sad event.
Harambee! #WeAreOne! May we all be truly united in a strong Kenyan nation blessed by God!
Ave Maria and forwards with St. Luigi Orione!
