Experts from several countries and Interpol havejoined Kenya's investigation into the four-day siegeof the Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi byIslamist militants in which at least 67 people died.The Kenyan Interior Minister Joseph Ole Lenku confirmed that five militants believed to be fromthe Somali Islamist group al-Shabab had also been killed. From Nairobi Will Ross reports.

It's likely to be a slow process as forensic experts from Britain, America, Israel, Germany andCanada search for clues to reveal the identity and nationalities of the gunmen. The Kenyangovernment says their work has begun inside the battered and bloodied walls of the Westgatemall. Following the collapse of part of the building it's believed that there are still bodies underthe rubble, possibly some of the militants. As other high-profile institutions in Nairobi alsoconsidered potential targets, security has been stepped up but much more is needed toensure that another large-scale attack cannot happen here.

We were pushed back by the police upper of the headquarter Golden Dawn who used teargasagainst the crowds. It hits us at one point quite badly, we have to turn on our gas masks andwe were pushed back and then the crowds sort of dispersed to different sites, there werepetrol bombs and thrown at the police, couple of things are setting on fire, it's allcrackdown,but certainly, the mood here was very much angry against Golden Dawn but alsoangry against the government because many here believed that the government has too longtolerated and even appeased the neo-Nazis.
