Al-Qaeda linked terror group Al-Shabaab has for the first time released a video displaying the names and faces of five assailants who attacked the DusitD2 complex in Nairobi last year.
The images of the assailants were displayed in a 7-minute clip.
In the video, the five attackers state that their assault is a response to the decision by American President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of the ‘Jewish state’, a reference to Israel.
According to reports by some independent media in Mogadishu, the video also shows the men in a car, heading towards the target of their mission. The jihadists could also be seen watching a film about the founder of Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden.
The clip states that three of the attackers were Kenyan while two were Somali. The video also reveals the tribes and clans of the jihadists.
