Kenyan minister evades intelligence questions after attack

Published:Monday | September 30, 2013 | 9:11 AM

Kenya's interior minister has refused to answer questions about possible intelligence failings in the wake of the Westgate shopping centre attack.

Joseph Ole Lenku said intelligence issues are confidential and would not be discussed in public.

The questions arose after Kenyan papers reported that the intelligence agency had issued warnings a year ago.

Some 67 people were killed after al-Shabab militants stormed the Westgate centre on September 21.

In a news conference yesterday, Lenku confirmed the death toll but refused to give the nationalities or identities of the suspects being held.
