Two men convicted of deadly Nairobi mall attack

A Kenyan court has convicted two men of helping Islamist militants kill at least 67 people in a 2013 attack at a mall in Nairobi.

The two men, Mohammed Ahmed Abdi and Hussein Hassan Mustafa, were found guilty of conspiracy to commit a terrorist act. A third man was acquitted of the charges.

This was the first time suspects were prosecuted for the September 2013 attack at the Westgate shopping mall.
