Authorities say at least 27 others were taken to five area hospitals. WABC-TV has reported that all but a handful of the patients had been treated and released.

Militant group: hostages alive in Kenya mall

   NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The militant group that attacked a Nairobi mall and killed at least 60 people says it is still holding hostages alive inside and that its fighters are "still holding their ground."

   The Twitter messages posted Tuesday by the al-Qaida-linked rebel group al-Shabab came after Kenyan government assurances of success in the fourth-day of the standoff.

   Al-Shabab says the hostages "are still alive, looking quite disconcerted but, nevertheless, alive."

   A security expert with contacts inside said Monday night there were at least 30 hostages when the assault began Saturday and at least 10 were believed to be still inside the upscale mall. Officials did not give a figure, saying only that "most" hostages had been released.

   Sporadic gunfire could be heard from the building Tuesday as government forces pressed on inside.

Kenya deputy president seeks trial adjournment

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Lawyers for Kenya's deputy president sought an urgent adjournment Sunday in his trial at the International Criminal Court so he can return home to help deal with the fallout from the deadly shopping mall attack in Nairobi.

The motion underscores the difficulties for Deputy President William Ruto in attending the trial in The Hague while trying to help run his country.

Ruto's lead attorney, Karim Khan, said the court is expected to debate his request early Monday morning.

"Mr. Ruto, as the serving deputy president of Kenya, is required to return to Kenya to discharge his ordinary constitutional duties which include participating in security briefings and consultations and involvement in other ongoing and very sensitive national security investigations," Khan's motion said.

Ruto, whose trial started earlier this month in The Hague, has pleaded not guilty to charges of orchestrating violence in the aftermath of Kenya's 2007 elections. He is the first such high-ranking elected government leader to go on trial at the International Criminal Court.

Saturday's mall attack by Islamic extremists left dozens of people dead and Kenyan troops in in standoff with the assailants. Somalia's al-Qaida-linked rebel group, al-Shabab, claimed responsibility for the attack and said it was retribution for Kenyan forces' 2011 push into Somalia and threatened more attacks.

Before Ruto's trial started, judges had agreed to a defense request to allow the deputy president to remain in Kenya for parts of his case. However prosecutors appealed the decision, and Ruto is currently obliged to attend all sittings in The Hague until there is a ruling on that appeal.

Khan said the situation unfolding in Nairobi "shows the wisdom of the trial chamber's original decision and how regrettable it was the prosecution took such a rigid view" of the necessity for Ruto to attend all hearings.

"There are 40 million people in Kenya, and they have a constitutional right to have the people they want govern over them," Khan said.

The situation could become further exacerbated later this year when Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta is due to go on trial for his alleged role in 2007-2008 postelection violence that left more than 1,000 people dead.

Crestwood Mall to close on Thursday

The Crestwood Court Mall will soon be shuttering its doors for good. The 55-year-old mall, the oldest in St. Louis County, now has a sign on the door telling patrons that it will be closed for good on Thursday. Lens Crafters is the only store that will remain open. They have a separate entrance to the mall. Centrum Partners is the Chicago-based developer that owns Crestwood Court. Last year they proposed a $100-million plan to convert the area into an entertainment district, but the city Crestwood says the asking price of $34 million in tax increment financing is too steep a price.
