Chicago refugee organization worries attack in Nairobi could mean forced relocation for refugees

Shots could be heard on Tuesday at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi. Terrorists from the al-Qaeda linked organization Al-Shabab besieged the mall on Saturday. More than 60 people are dead, including 3 soldiers and the crisis continues for Kenyan officials. With more than 600,000 refugees, in addition to 300,000 internally displaced persons, their is growing concern that these communities will face the wrath of the rest of the country.
