As Twitchy reported earlier, gunmen launched a terrorist attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, reportedly telling Muslims to leave the area before opening fire. The al-Qaeda-linked Somali militia al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack, and the group’s “press office,” @HSM_Press, has been tweeting its grievances and demands throughout the day.

Kuffar, like infidels, is a derogatory term for non-Muslims.

For whatever reason, CNN is still being careful to enclose the word “terrorists” in quotation marks.
