Pressure mounted on the Kenyan authorities a week after the Nairobi mall carnage amid questions over the fate of the missing and accusations on September 28 that top brass failed to heed security warnings. President Uhuru Kenyatta has vowed not to bow to the Shebab group that claimed the Westgate mall bloodbath and threatened more attacks if Kenya failed to pull its troops out of Somalia. But his administration faced tough questions after the leaking of an intelligence report dated September 13 that warned of an elevated risk, which some top officials said was treated too casually.
