A Standoff In Kenya And Terrorism Around The World

Kojo explores the impact of the rapidly developing standoff in Nairobi, Kenya, -- and what it means for efforts to combat terrorism in East Africa and around the world.

Kenya is reeling from its deadliest terrorist attack in more than a decade. Operations are still ongoing to end the standoff at a luxury mall in Nairobi, Kenya, where there are already nearly 70 confirmed deaths. Kojo explores what questions the attack has prompted about the militant group claiming responsiblity -- and what it means for the security of the region and the rest of the world.
