Uma parte do telhado do centro comercial Westgate em Nairobi, onde está barricado desde sábado um comando radical islâmico, ruiu esta terça-feira após um violento incêndio, noticiou a France Presse citando fontes concordantes.

Segundo uma fonte ligada à segurança e um bombeiro, foi uma parte do estacionamento que desabou, fragilizada por um incêndio. Esta área de estacionamento servia de cobertura a uma parte das traseiras do centro, nomeadamente a um supermercado.

O comando islamita atacou no sábado o luxuoso centro comercial Westgate, numa altura em que o recinto estava cheio de quenianos e estrangeiros que aproveitavam o fim de semana para fazer compras.

Três soldados mortos

Entretanto, o exército queniano anunciou que três dos onze soldados feridos no ataque de quatro dias contra o comando que invadiu o shopping Westgate de Nairobi morreram.

"Onze soldados das forças de defesa ficaram feridos e infelizmente três deles morreram em consequência dos ferimentos", informou um porta-voz do exército, o coronel Cyrus Oguna.

O coronel Oguna afirmou que as mortes ocorreram em função da "natureza complexa e delicada das operações" no shopping Westgate, que "exigem precauções extremas para garantir a segurança dos reféns".

"As forças de defesa quenianas realizaram esta missão com muito profissionalismo", acrescentou.

Com estas mortes, sobe para 65 o número oficial de vítimas mortais deste ataque.
