Somalia's militant group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the upscale mall attack Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, and said its action was retribution for Kenyan forces' 2011 push into Somalia. The group threatened more attacks. The assault killed at least 23 people, officials said, with fears the toll could rise further.
