Kenya mall attack: About 30 hostages still inside, sources say - CNN.com

This is hitting close to home for some. One member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has family that live in that area and frequent this mall. He's been unable to reach any of them.

How awful.

We need to be reminded that contention is a striving against one another, especially in controversy or argument. It is to struggle, fight, battle, quarrel, or dispute. Contention never was and never will be an ally of progress. Our loyalty will never be measured by our participation in controversy. Some misunderstand the realm, scope, and dangers of contention. Too many of us are inclined to declare, “Who, me? I am not contentious, and I’ll fight anyone who says I am.” There are still those among us who would rather lose a friend than an argument. How important it is to know how to disagree without being disagreeable. It behooves all of us to be in the position to involve ourselves in factual discussions and meaningful study, but never in bitter arguments and contention. -Marvin J Ashton

From what I read, this attack was al Qaeda linked. Al Qaeda terrorist groups are apparently re-surging in their strength and efforts.

Edit: The attack on the upscale Westgate Mall in Kenya's capital has killed 68 people and wounded at least 175.
