A mother and her children hide from gunmen at Westgate Shopping Centre in Nairobi. Gunmen stormed the shopping mall killing at least 20 people in what Kenya's government said was a terrorist attack, and sending scores fleeing into shops, a cinema and onto the streets in search of safety. Sporadic gun shots could be heard hours after the assault started as soldiers surrounded the mall and police and soldiers combed the building, hunting down the attackers shop by shop.
