An Ex-Royal Marine with a handgun saved 100 people as Islamists attacked the Kenyan Westgate Mall. According to the Daily Mail, the former Marine was having coffee with friends in Westgate Mall when the attack began. Armed only with his handgun, he immediately began gathering people and getting them out of the building.
One of his friends said, “He went back inside twelve times and saved 100 people. Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.”
The hero with a handgun is a former Royal Marine who now lives in Kenya, but he cannot be identified for security reasons.
Suffice it to say, “British military regularly [trains] and [operates] out of Kenya, and have been involved in tracking UK citizen involved with hardline Islamists in Somalia and Yemen.”
