Nairobi - Officials in Kenya say two boxes of charred body parts have been delivered to the city morgue from Westgate mall and that four AK-47 assault rifles were found alongside the remains.

Gunmen stormed the mall on 21 September, killing more than 60 people.

A city morgue official told The Associated Press that the two boxes arrived on Thursday, and that a team of foreigners padlocked the boxes on Friday.

A security official said one of the four gunmen seen in security footage is a Norwegian-Somali whose last name is Dhuhulow and the first or middle name is Abdi. The official said four AK-47 rifles, 11 AK-47 magazines and one RPG were recovered at the mall Thursday.

Both officials insisted on anonymity because they couldn't speak publicly.
