Kenya Forces Said to Be Securing Mall After Long Standoff

NAIROBI, Kenya — The bloody standoff at a Kenyan shopping mall edged closer to a conclusion on Monday night, with Kenyan officials saying that their troops were securing the building and that there were no more civilians trapped inside. “We’re in control of #Westgate,” Kenya’s Interior Ministry said in a Twitter message late Monday night, referring to the large, upscale mall that Islamist militants stormed on Saturday, killing more than 60 people.
