This is Kenyan equivalent of the U.S.’s SWAT team. The Kenya Police force was overwhelmed and had no idea of how to tackle the suicidal terrorists who sprayed bullets with abandon. To neutralise the Al Shabaab elements the highly skilled Recce Squad was brought on board. The Recce squad was armed with the latest weaponry in the country. With the help of the Kenya Defence Forces the siege on Westgate finally ended albeit with many casualties.
