Court denies terror charge bail plea

NAIROBI:

A Kenyan court denied a plea for bail yesterday by four Somali men charged with terrorist offences for allegedly helping al Qaeda-linked militants attack a Nairobi shopping mall that killed at least 67 people. The Somali Islamist group al Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack, which struck at the heart of east Africa's biggest economy, over Kenya's refusal to withdraw troops in Somalia.
