The trial of four men charged in connection with Kenya's Westgate mall massacre opened Wednesday, an attack claimed by Somalia's Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab insurgents.The court heard testimony from a guard who was outside the upmarket mall when the gunmen launched their attack in September, killing at least 67 people.The men are not accused of carrying out the attack, but of lending support to the gunmen.All the gunmen in the Westgate siege -- understood to have totalled four, not the dozen that security forces initially reported -- are believed to have died during the attack, according to security sources.
