NAIROBI, Kenya - The United States Ambassador to Kenya says U.S. experts are helping Kenyan forces search for bodies and evidence in the collapsed mall that Islamic terrorists held for four days.
Robert F. Godec said in a statement Wednesday that the U.S. is providing technical support and equipment to Kenyan security forces and medical responders.
The death toll, currently at 67, is expected to rise as bodies are retrieved.
Godec said, at the request of the Kenyan government, the U.S. will assist investigating the attack to bring its organizers and perpetrators to justice.
Kenyan forensic experts - aided by American and Israeli specialists - are working to reconstruct what happened in the attack. British forensic experts are also expected.
