Somali al-Shabab terrorists (al-Qaeda-aligned cousins of the Syrian Islamists President Obama is arming) attacked mall in Nairobi Kenya yesterday, and there are hundreds of casualties. The terrorists are still inside mall along with an unknown number of shoppers that are either trapped or are being help as hostages.

Kenyan police and military units have responded, including what appears to be an elite military unit that is armed with FN SCAR 17s, equipped with EOTEch holographic sights.

Hopefully the equipment advantage is combined with a training advantage, and the unit can help rescue the remaining hostages with a minimal loss of life.
