For CNN Correspondent, Nairobi Attack Hits Close To Home

For CNN International correspondent Zain Verjee, the terrorist attack at a mall in Nairobi, Kenya hit very close to home. Literally. Verjee grew up not far from the mall, and still lives nearby, as she shared today.

“This is where we have coffee, this is where I meet my friends, this is where I socialize, this is where diplomats, expats everybody goes to shop,” Verjee said. “Every Saturday morning we go to buy groceries, as hundreds of people did that Saturday morning.”

WATCH:

Every network and cable channel has correspondents in Nairobi, following up on the latest from the hostile mall takeover by terrorists over the weekend. Among them: NBC’s Ron Allen, CBS’ Charlie D’Agata, ABC’s Linsey Davis and Kirit Radia and CNN’s Verjee, Nima Elbagir and Arwa Damon.
