NAIROBI (Reuters) - A Kenyan court on Monday charged four Somali men with "terrorism" offences for helping al Qaeda-linked militants who attacked a shopping mall in Nairobi in September, an assault that killed 67 people.

The charges included offering support, providing shelter and providing false documents to suspected gunmen, who were linked to the Somali Islamist militant group al Shabaab.

The four suspects all pleaded not guilty.
