Is The Media Hyping Kenya’s Terrorist Attack?

Kenya-islamists Al-Shabab, an Islamist extremist group based in Somalia with ties to al-Qaeda, claimed responsibility for an attack in Nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall on Saturday.

More than 60 civilians have been killed and 11 Kenyan soldiers injured. The Kenyan authorities have failed to exert full control over the situation, as al-Shabab fighters remain hidden in the mall.

With the world watching these tragic events unfold, many are questioning why Kenya was the target of a terrorist attack. What implications does this have for other nations, such as Russia, who are engaged in a struggle against Islamic radicalism?

Do you think the threat of global jihad is on the decline or does Kenya’s terrorist attack serve as a reminder that Islamist extremism remains a potent force?
