Three of the militants behind fatal attack on a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya were American, sources within the group told CNN but there are reports that the number of Americans involved amounted to six.

CNN reported that the American-linked militants from al-Shabab, the Somali-based militant group with ties to al-Qaeda, were among the militants who carried out the attack on Sunday which killed at least 68 people.

Two of the American citizens are reportedly from Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, and the other is from Kansas City, Missouri.

Minneapolis has a large Somali community with a history of recruitment efforts by al-Shabab as well as al-Qaeda, according to News Max.

The FBI has not confirmed that Americans were involved in the attack but it is investigating the claim.
