Red Cross: More missing found after attack

30 September 2013, 13:48

Nairobi - A spokeswoman for Kenya's Red Cross says "progress" has been made in finding some of the 59 people who were still missing after the Westgate mall attack.

Wariko Waita said Monday that some were being reunited with their families, although she gave no details about numbers or where those people were found.

She said a Red Cross team was counseling the victims at a triage center 600 meters (yards) away from the shattered mall where forensics experts are combing through the crime scene for evidence. Some bodies are still believed to be trapped under the rubble.

The Red Cross said Friday the number of missing people stood at 59.

Authorities have given few details about the September 21st attack, urging patience.

According to Daily Nation, the charitable organisation said that 14 people have been found alive and discharged from various hospitals while seven are dead.
