Nairobi - Kenyan police said Sunday they were offering a reward for information about a car reportedly used in the attack on Westgate mall last month.
Police believe the car contained explosives and are offering a reward of 500,000 shillings ($5,827, 4,300 euros).
"The car had explosives and weapons and we want the owners," said anti-terrorism police chief Boniface Mwaniki.
The vehicle is registered as belonging to a Kenyan and a Somali, said Mwaniki.
The four-day siege of the upmarket mall left at least 67 people dead with another 39 still listed as missing.
Officials have said that between four and six men carried out the attack and that they killed five assailants in a shootout though security camera footage released after the attack shows only four attackers.
Police have named four of the attackers as Abu Baraal Al Sudani, Khatab Ali Khane and one man known simply as Umayr -- all Somalis, plus a Kenyan of Somali origin, Omar Nabhan.
