The Daily Telegraph reports Amina Mohamed, Kenya’s foreign minister stating that:
"From the information that we have, two or three Americans (were involved) and I think, so far, I have heard of one Brit... a woman ... and I think she has done this many times before," she told the US’s PBS NewsHour programme.Still, as the Daily Telegraph reports, the Brits were heroes of the hour, as an off duty member of Britain's special forces personally saved dozens of lives by going "back and forth between the building and the outside world around 12 times, helping people escape from the complex."
In addition, a team of On-duty Special Air Service soldiers just happened to be at the scene last night, helping the Kenyan authorities in their final attempt to free the hostages.
Oh well, jolly good show. Obviously those Kenyans need to show their appreciation of Western aid in the war on terror. The Chinese, of course, were conspicuous by their absence. Kenyans should take note. China wants your oil but the heck with saving you from the ravages of Anglo/American terrorists.
Israeli forces are also said to be on the scene though they have not participated directly in attempts to rescue attempts.Israeli forces famously rescued hostages in the June 1976 highjacking of an airliner diverted to Kenya's Entebbe Airport by Palestinian terrorists. And there is evidence to suggest that Israel's Shin Bet security service collaborated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine to hijack that June 1976 flight. So now the Kenyans have reason to be doubly grateful to Israel.
