  • CARL AZUZ, CNN ANCHOR: Hi, I`m Carl Azuz. This is CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • We`re starting this week with a terrorist attack at a shopping mall that turned into a hostage situation.

  • This happened in the East African nation of Kenya, and the capital city of Nairobi.

  • The Westgate Shopping Mall is a popular place for Kenyans and people from other countries.

  • On Saturday, people were desperate to get out of the mall, some hid in stores, bathrooms or stairwells.

  • Kenyan soldiers and police officers responded after gunman stormed the building and started shooting.

  • At least 68 people were killed, at least the 175 others were injured.

  • On Sunday evening, the Kenyan military said most of the hostages inside the Westgate mall had been rescued.

  • And they were making every effort to end the situation.

  • An extremist Islamic group called al Shabab says it`s responsible for this attack.

  • It`s based in Somalia, a country that borders Kenya.

  • And it`s affiliated with al Qaeda, the terrorist organization that`s responsible for attacks around the world.

  • The Westgate Mall in Nairobi is what security expert consider a soft target:

  • it`s a place that might have less security, where terrorist could potentially cause more damage.

  • Margaret Conley examined safety managers at these types of locations.

  • MARGARET CONLEY, CNN CORRESPONDENT: It may be more than 7,000 miles from Nairobi, Kenya to the United States,

  • but the mall massacre halfway around the world couldn`t bring a tragedy any closer to home.

  • Washington D.C. resident Sara Head was inside the mall when shots were fired.

  • She kept hidden in the stairwell with dozens of others as the chaos unfolded.

  • SARA HEAD, WITNESS: So, we just waited in the stairwell for about an hour and a half,

  • there were two individuals with me who had superficial gunshot wounds,

  • well, individuals in the stairwell with me, they were not with me,

  • but there was about probably - I don`t know, 60 of us.

  • There were a few floors worth of people.

  • CONLEY: The attack on this so-called soft targets raises the question about mall security on U.S. soil.

  • Could what happened overseas, happen here?

  • LT. COL. RICK FRANCONA, CNN MILITARY ANALYST: Soft targets are always attractive to terrorists because they are usually not defended.

  • It`s very effective way of causing a lot of panic,

  • a lot of damage very quickly and achieving objective of terrorizing people.

  • CONLEY: Back in this country, one more that puts its security front and center, is Minnesota`s Mall of America.

  • One of the largest enclosed shopping centers in the country visited by 42 million people a year.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think that if you are looking for 100 percent safety, you should probably wrap yourself in bubble wrap and never leave home.

  • CONLEY: It even has something many government facilities do not.

  • ANNOUNCER: This is a drill. Mall of America is now going into lockdown.

  • CONLEY: Twice a month without fail its tenants and its customers participate in a lockdown drill,

  • practicing how to shelter in backrooms of stores to try to prevent casualties in an attack.

  • DOUG REYNOLDS, MALL OF AMERICA: Yes, if something bad should happen here,

  • we don`t want our response to start with - and law enforcement will be here and they will protect you.

  • We want to know what can be done until law enforcement gets here.

  • CONLEY: Even with heightened security an awareness of your surroundings may end up being your best defense.

  • TOM FUENTES, LAW ENFORCEMENT ANALYST: For the average American citizen,

  • you go to the grocery store, you go to the gas station, and you go to the shopping mall, and you go to a movie theater,

  • you take walks in your neighborhood,

  • anyone of those situations could make you vulnerable if other people or another person is out there determined to conduct an attack.

  • ANNOUNCER: See, if you can I.D. me.

  • I`m a form of severe weather.

  • I occur in the Western North Pacific Ocean around China, Japan and the Philippines.

  • I`m the same type of storm as the hurricane or a cyclone.

  • I`m a typhoon, and my name can be traced back to a Greek word that means "violent storm."

  • AZUZ: This is what we mean by violent: Typhoon Usagi blew in the China`s Guandong Province Sunday night.

  • That`s in the southeast part of the country.

  • It`s been the world`s most powerful storm of the year.

  • And Usagi had already brought death and destruction to the Philippines and Taiwan before it approached mainland China.

  • At one point before it hit China, Usagi was classified as a super typhoon, the equivalent of the category five hurricane.

  • You can see here why forecasters were saying, flooding would be a problem.

  • Usagi shut down a major shipping lane, forced hundreds of flights to be canceled and evacuations were in the tens of thousands.

  • It is common for this region to see major storms at this time of year, though.

  • Officials in Chicago, Illinois, are trying to find ways to reduce violence in their city.

  • Last year, there were 500 homicides in Chicago, that`s more than any other American city.

  • The spotlight is back in Chicago, after another shooting incident last week:

  • 13 people were wounded by shots fired in a park.

  • One of the victims was three years old.

  • Officials said he was in stable condition last Fridays, and none of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries.

  • Chicago`s police superintendent called that a miracle.

  • He also said, the shooting appeared to be gang-related.

  • Some people in Chicago are trying to bring local gangs there together, in an effort to stop the violence.

  • Mike Puccinelli from affiliate WBBN has more on this weekend`s "Peace Tournament."

  • MIKE PUCCINELLI, WBBN REPORTER: It looks like an ordinary basketball game, but this court is made up of teams of rivals:

  • gang bangers and ex-gang bangers who`ve come together to play ball.

  • DUAN HILL, FORMER GANG MEMBER: Like bring everybody together, like we are (inaudible) the same, accomplish (inaudible) and move on.

  • And leave all the shooting and gang bangers off the streets.

  • PUCCINELLI: It`s the second annual Peace Tournament put on by Father Michael Pfleger and about a dozen of his NBA friends.

  • NBA Hall of Fame and Chicago native Isiah Thomas was there, cajoling two rivals to hug before the game.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I can kill him. And I can kill you, man.

  • PUCCINELLI: And it appeared to work.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We got to be better than this.

  • PUCCINELLI: The tournament comes at a time when Chicago was again in the headlines after 13 people were shot in Cornell Square Park Thursday night.

  • It`s an embarrassment for the city and the mayor who leads it.

  • PUCCINELLI: And Rahm Emanuel was booed when he entered the gym today.

  • PUCCINELLI: The same can`t be said of Derek Rose who received cheers worthy of an NBA MVP.

  • Rose and many of the other NBA players have come from the same hard-scrabbled neighborhoods as those playing today.

  • So, when expo Ben Gordon speaks, the at risk boys and men listen.

  • BEN GORDON, NBA PLAYER: Whoever is in this community, you`ve got to come together as a people,

  • you`ve got to try to unite, try to realize that when we (inaudible), this is digging ourselves to deeper (inaudible)

  • PUCCINELLI: And it`s hope that today`s game can help those who want a climb out.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They are no longer enemies to me.

  • AZUZ: All right. If you saw a $20 bill just lying on the ground, you might just pick it up and keep it.

  • What if you saw someone drop a 20 and then you saw someone else pocket it.

  • That happened to Joey Prusak.

  • WCCO`s Susan Elizabeth Littlefield tells us what happened next.

  • JOEY PRUSAK, MANAGER, DAIRY QUEEN MANAGER: I bet you I had 20 some phone calls and like Yahoo! News called.

  • SUSAN ELIZABETH LITTLEFIELD, WCCO CORRESPONDENT: What happened last week has people talking and wanting to speak to him.

  • A six-summer veteran worker, he was doing a (inaudible) when a visually impaired customer walked in the door.

  • PRUSAK: When he went to put everything back in his pocket, because he put it in his front pocket,

  • that`s when it happened - he dropped $20 bill on the ground.

  • LITTLEFIELD: Another customer stepped in for all the wrong reasons.

  • PRUSAK: The lady behind him picked it up so quickly that I figured - oh,

  • she is just going to hand it right back to him when she went and put it in her purse.

  • She goes - it`s my money.

  • And I go, "All right, I`m going to ask you to leave the store politely right now."

  • And then she made a big scene, started swearing, and then she stormed out.

  • LITTLEFIELD: After serving the people in line, he approached the blind man who`d been listening to what had happened to his money.

  • PRUSAK: And I told him, you dropped $20,

  • I would like to give you $20 on behalf of myself and Dairy Queen, just trying to make things right.

  • LITTLEFIELD: But it didn`t come from his cash register, it came from his pocket.

  • PRUSAK: About two hours pay.

  • LITTLEFIELD: Someone who is watching from afar, wrote to corporate.

  • While dozens called, some came.

  • (on camera): WCCO radio, and that`s - I heard about it.

  • And it just touched my heart, and I said I have to come meet - I have to just bring a card, so I brought a card to say thank you to Joey.

  • PRUSAK: They think what I did was so extremely nice,

  • when all I was doing was really the right thing to do.

  • AZUZ: We`re going to start on the East Coast and work our way West for today`s "Roll Call."

  • First up, "Ocean Township New Jersey and the Spartans of Ocean Township High.

  • Next, it`s over to Mt. Lebanon High School, that`s in Pittsburgh (ph), Pennsylvania, and it`s the home of the Blue Devils.

  • And our last stoop is with the Eagles from Hudsonville High School in Hudsonville. Michigan.

  • Thanks to all of you for watching.

  • Hockey fan was tired of waiting to see if his team would get a new arena so he built one himself out of Legos.

  • Even gave his home team the Stanley Cup.

  • We`re not just talking about some simple toy construction project.

  • This is a full-scale arena with announcers, cameramen, hallways, restrooms.

  • There are advertisements on the board, there is even a statue out front.

  • Building something like this was no piece of cake, but adding all of the little hockey details was definitely the icing.

  • The builder says, he`s planning to tear it down and start a new project soon, so I guess this one was just ad hockey.

  • You can make a mega Lego creation, too, you just need to block out enough time.

  • We are out of time.

  • We`ll be back tomorrow with more building blocks of news on CNN STUDENT NEWS.
