The film shows men, women and children fleeing in terror after the attackers stormed the Kenyan shopping centre. One man is shot as he slumps in front of a cash desk. He tries to crawl away but is shot again at close-range by an attacker.

The siege carried on for almost a week, however the footage focuses on the first day of the ordeal, as shoppers in the high-end mall popular with westerners were systematically gunned down.

The atrocity was carried out by Islamic militants from the Somali-based group al-Shabaab, with the massacre "retaliation" for Kenya’s troops entering Somalia.
