The International Crisis Group (ICG) published on 25 September 2014 a briefing titled "Kenya: Al-Shabaab--Closer to Home." It reports that al-Shabaab has become more entrenched and active in Kenya following the attack on Westgate Mall a year ago. The country's immediate post-Westgate unity has broken down in the face of increasing attacks. The political elites, security services, and ethnic and faith communities are beset by mutual suspicion and recriminations.
