British man: 'Animals' killed my wife and daughter

A father has branded those who killed his wife and eight-year-old daughter "animals". British Jennah and her Kenyan mother were killed by terrorists who laid siege to a shopping mall in Kenya.

Louis Bawa spoke of the moment he learned that his daughter and wife Zahira had been killed in the siege, in an interview with the Telegraph.

Mr Bawa said: "The last time I spoke to them was on Friday evening, I didn't get a chance to catch up with them on Saturday morning. They were going to Westgate to do what they always did, grocery shopping. This time they didn't come home.

"The people who did this, they are vigilantes, they are animals. At the end of the day they are using religion as an excuse to kill people. They're saying that they were targeting certain people, but they were targeting anyone.

"Zahira and Jennah were Muslims, but these animals just shot them the same as all of the others. At first I was convinced that they would be OK. I had hope.

"Then on Sunday night there was a team that went in to bring out some bodies and they took photographs."We all had to look at these pictures - something I would never want anyone to have to do - and identify them. My heart just stopped, that was the last news in the world I wanted to hear."
