Kenyan authorities have repeatedly claimed that up to 15 heavily armed attackers from the al-Qaeda affiliated al-Shabaab terror group were involved in the operation which overwhelmed the African nation's police and defence forces for three days. Some were supposed to be foreign nationals.
New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told media yesterday his investigators did not know "with certainty" how many people were involved, "but we believe there were only four shooters."
Their reconstruction of the attack suggests the four men acted in teams of two, coordinating their movements via mobile phone.They were supposed to have been wielding heavy machineguns and explosives.
The report is the outcome of an investigation by the NYPD, who sent several detectives to Nairobi in the aftermath of the attack with the New York Joint Terrorism Task Force

I could reply " well thats the good ol' US of A for ya ,always poking around others business" but i will refrain & simply say I'm curious as to why that is myself.
Kenyan officials now believe only four to six militants were involved in the Nairobi siege
closed-circuit television video from inside the Westgate mall during the attack appeared on national and international news media showing Kenyan security agents carrying full plastic shopping bags out of the Nakumatt supermarket in the mall,
More and more Kenyans believe that those soldiers methodically cleaned out the mall, and that the barrages of gunfire ringing out for days were being directed not at the last of the militants but at safes and padlocks to blast them open.

Why is the NYPD investigating this thing at all?!
Were they invited to? Why?
What is an American CITY police department doing sending CITY cops out to investigate international locations on terrorism? New York seems to think of itself as more than a mere city?
