American cable company HBO yesterday premiered their Westgate documentary, Terror at the Mall.
British filmmaker Dan Reed assembled thousands of hours of footage gleaned from more than 100 security cameras inside the mall and video from television crews. He worked on the project for almost a year, embarking on it just weeks after the attack.
He managed to track down over 200 people and interviewed 82 of them on camera. The survival stories are incredible, but the images and the CCTV videos extremely shocking.
Among the footage aired in the almost 2 hour documentary is one where KDF soldiers ‘bombed’ Nakumatt supermarket. They believed the gunmen were hiding inside the supermarket, and the quickest way to conclude the matter (according to them) was to bring the entire Supermarket down. The gunmen are believed to have died in the fire and that was the last CCTV footage recorded.
Watch it below starting from minute 55:30.
