Update: Kenya Mall Attack

Updated: Wednesday, September 25 2013, 05:44 PM EDT
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - FBI agents are conducting fingerprint, DNA and ballistic analysis in Kenya today to help determine the identities and nationalities of the al-Shabab gunmen who attacked a Nairobi shopping mall and their victims.
   
The current death toll is 67, but is likely to climb with uncounted bodies remaining in the wreckage. Another 175 people were injured, including more than 60 who remain hospitalized.
   
At least 18 foreigners were among those killed. Al-Shabab calls them a "legitimate target" and, in an email exchange with The Associated Press, confirms witness accounts that gunmen separated Muslims from other people and let the Muslims go free.
   
Kenya's foreign minister has said that "two or three" American citizens may have been among the attackers, but a Western official says passport and refugee databases have provided no evidence so far that that was the case.
   
Meanwhile, a government official says it was Kenyan soldiers who created a gaping hole in the mall's roof. The official says the soldiers knocked out a support column with rocket-propelled grenades, as they tried to distract a terrorist sniper and evacuate hostages.
