>>> we're seeing powerful new pictures this morning from inside the mall in kenya that was the scene of the deadly terror attack. ron allen is in nairobi with the new images. good morning.

>> good morning, lester.

>> we obtained these pictures exclusively. some were taken in the past 24 hours . as you can will see, they are raw, graphic. they show the utter destruction of the mall in the aftermath, the aftermath of the four-day siege that left 67 people dead. keep in mind when you look at these pictures, that this happened at sat afternoon in a mall that looked before this like any other mall in suburban american. hundreds of shoppers, restaurants, cafes, a children's cooking competition going on that involved dozens of very young kid. five gunmen were killed. was that the entire militant force that was there? so many questions remain. what happened to the hostages that were there? we're told 1,000 people were rescued. we never were told about what happened to the people held hostage up to the final day. there are reports this morning as well that the government had advanced warning about this. was that intelligence followed up on? did the government have the capability to act on that? the death toll at 67, the investigation continues.

>> rob allen this morning, thank you so much.
