I hope so.
Kenyan President Kenyatta says so:
Kenya’s president said on Tuesday that his forces had “defeated” Islamists from Somalia’s al Shabaab, had shot five of them dead and detained 11 others suspected of killing 67 people after storming a Nairobi shopping mall.
It remained unclear after Uhuru Kenyatta addressed the nation on television whether the four-day security operation at the upmarket Westgate centre was completely over, or whether any militants were still at large or hostages unaccounted for.
“We have ashamed and defeated our attackers,” Kenyatta said, adding that bodies were still trapped under rubble following the collapse of part of the building late in the operation. A fire began on Monday which officials said was started by the gunmen.
Many mysteries abound. We may learn the answers to at least some of them in the fullness of time. Who were/are the terrorists? Were Americans among them? Who are the victims (here are two—actually, three, if you count the unborn viable child)? How did the incident finally end? Were some or all of the hostages freed (note that Kenyatta doesn’t seem to mention this)? What will happen to the terrorists now in custody? Did any escape and, if so, do we know their identities?
