NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — An official tells The Associated Press that Nairobi's city morgue is preparing for the arrival of a large number of bodies of people killed in the Westgate Mall terrorist attack in Kenya.

The government official says morgue employees were told to prepare for many bodies. Morgue employees were dressed in smocks early Tuesday, though no bodies had been delivered. The official death toll from the mall attack stood at 62. Most of those bodies were already taken to the morgue, either directly or from hospitals.

A city resident whose brother is taking part in the military operation inside the mall told AP that there were many dead bodies still in the mall.

Both the government official and the Nairobi resident insisted their names not be used so they would not face retribution from government officials.
