Westgate attack: Kenyan police warn journalists

Kenya’s police chief has warned journalists over their coverage of last month’s attack on the Westgate shopping centre, following reports of looting by soldiers.

David Kimaiyo said reporters should not “provoke propaganda” or “incite Kenyans” in their coverage.

CCTV footage has been leaked on local media which appears to show soldiers taking items from a supermarket.

The army has said the soldiers were only taking water during the siege.

At least 67 people, including six members of the security forces, were killed after Islamist militants stormed one of Nairobi’s biggest shopping centres, staying there for four days.

Somalia’s al-Shabab group has said it was behind the attack.

As well as the looting, local media have also reported that some members of the security forces were killed by friendly fire during the siege, raising concerns about the command structure.
