Architect of Deadly Kenya Mall Attack Killed by U.S. Drone

The mastermind of the terrorist attack that killed 67 people at the Westgate Mall in Naibrobi, Kenya, in 2013 has died after a U.S. military drone strike in Somalia, the Defense Department said Wednesday. Adan Garar was one of several people in a vehicle struck by as many as three Hellfire missiles last Thursday, U.S. military officials told NBC News. Garar was a member of the security wing of al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda-aligned group seeking to topple the Western-backed government of Somalia and impose its strict version of Islamic law.
