Uhuru Kenyatta: Kenyan troops 'will stay in Somalia'

Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta has addressed a multi-faith prayer service for the 67 victims of the Westgate shopping centre attack.

He told the gathering that the Somali militants behind the siege had tried to use religion to divide Kenyans but faith had instead united them.

The president added that if al-Shabab fighters thought the mall attack would make Kenya withdraw its troops from Somalia, they were mistaken.
