Kenyan Mall reopens 2 years after massacre

Kenya's Westgate shopping mall has reopened for business, almost two years after Somali Islamists stormed in and massacred 67 shoppers and staff in four days of carnage.
Around 50 shoppers - some of them survivors of the massacre - queued on Saturday to be the first to pass through newly-installed metal detectors at the main entrance, after Nairobi governor Evans Kidero and Atul Shah, owner of the main regional supermarket chain Nakumatt, declared the mall back in business in a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
