Norwegian-Somali ID'd as Kenya mall attacker

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A Mogadishu court in March released a man with the same names as a Norwegian-Somali named as one of the gunmen who attacked Kenya's Westgate mall.

Kenyan and Western officials on Friday said that Hassan Abdi Dhuhulow has been identified as one of four gunmen seen attacking the mall on Sept. 21.

A news release from the National Union of Somali Journalists from March 28 says that a court freed Abdi Hassan Dhuhulow because there was no proof he had assisted in the killing of a Somali journalist in Mogadishu.

There was no way to immediately confirm the two men are the same.
