"A commander of the group believed to be behind the attack has reportedly denied that any of militants are from the UK or US."

And hey - if you can't believe a commander of a terrorist group of mass murderers, well, who CAN you believe?

Regards,
John

Interesting. I haven't heard that on any of the news channels from the states. I did however, hear that some of them MAY be from the states. Still waiting on confirmation. Nothing is surprising anymore.

UK media focussed on the fact that 4 of the dead were from UK.

Well, scotty, it seems the British media is focussed on the British woman know as the 'White Widow' with 'two or three' Americans, and they think they are behind the Kenyan massacre.

Caeldonian Macbrayne will have some questions to ask when they try to board the ferry with that ordnance ! Was this story mentioned at all in the US media ? It seems they are even more limited in what they cover than the UK media.

I will continue to watch Russia Today nd Al Jazeera for my news !

Nothing but the truth emanates from the capital of the Motherland. I thought everybody knew that?

These Salafists who carried out the massacre in Nairobi have the same diseased ideology as the nutters in Syria and Chechnya.

Well, scotty, the geo-politic of East Africa is different from that of Syria.
