10 Images Which Became The Face Of Riverside Attack In Kenya

These are some of the images which became the face of the Riverside attack which happened on 15th January at around 3:30 PM. Somali Militant group Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the assault which saw at least 21 people losing their lives as at now.

The Riverside attack brought back painful memories of the September 21, 2013, Westgate attack where four masked gunmen struck and killed about 67 people…a Deja vu that many Kenyans don’t want to ever relive again.

Here are some of the photos which became the face of the Riverside attack; ethical photos which encouraged and hurt Kenyans at the same breath.

Have a look.
