KAMPALA, Uganda — KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — Security camera video shows Kenyan soldiers looting a store during the attack by extremists last month on Nairobi's Westgate mall.

In the video seen by The Associated Press Sunday, men in fatigues pick items from behind counters. Others are seen walking out of a store inside the mall holding plastic bags heavy with unknown items.

Kenya's security forces have previously denied any wrongdoing. Soon after the attack began on Sept. 21, Kenyan officials put a security cordon around the mall, allowing only security forces and a few government personnel to pass through. When the siege was over, some who owned shops inside the mall complained of looting.

Scores of people were killed in the four-day siege claimed by the Somali terrorist group al-Shabab.
