    Smoke from Westgate as seen from Upperhill


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     IT manager dennisweru may be several kilometers from the scene of an attack by terrorists on a mall in Nairobi, Kenya, which has left scores dead, but he can still see the smoke rising from the building and hear the chaos. "I know friends who were hurt and lost friends," he said. "It's very unsettling, I visit Westgate [mall] at least once a week." Despite the horrific nature of the attack, he remains determined to carry on with his life in his home city. "The Kenyan spirit cannot be broken by a bunch of thugs," he said. "The day Westgate opens I will be there to show them they can't scare us."
