Kenyans in East Africa and abroad are watching the terror attack at an upscale Nairobi mall unfold. We hear from some members of the Kenyan diaspora about what they know and how their community is reacting: Dan Aceda, a Kenyan musician currently on tour in the U.S.; Mwende Mwinzi, Kenyan New Yorker and media consultant with the Kenyan Government. Plus: Bronwyn Bruton, Deputy Director of the Atlantic Council Africa Center, discusses the fractured history of the group Al-Shabaab, which is taking credit for the attacks.
