Group behind Kenya mall attack claims militants still holding out, while 3 soldiers killed

The Islamist militant group behind a deadly terror attack on a shopping mall in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi says its fighters were still holding out despite claims by authorities that Kenyan security forces had regained control of the building.
The Al Qaeda-linked al-Shabab group, which has claimed responsibility for the attacks, posted on its Twitter account Tuesday that “There are countless number of dead bodies still scattered inside the mall, and the Mujahideen are still holding their ground.”
 
Kenyan officials say at least 62 people were killed and 200 have been wounded in the violence, while 63 were reported missing.
After four days, authorities now say they are involved in a final push to clear out the remaining attackers. But authorities have before referred to their operations as final. 

The FBI and U.S. intelligence officials have been "aggressively" investigating whether or not Americans were among the militants who attacked the mall, a federal law enforcement source told Fox News on Sunday.

I haven't been keeping up with this too much.  But it appears that perhaps Americans are the attackers.  American terrorists.  No
