A four-year-old British boy caught up in the Westgate Mall massacre in Nairobi Kenya showed astonishing bravery by confronting a gunman who ended up begging for his forgiveness.
Elliot Prior told one of the terrorists that he was a “very bad man” as he protected his mother, Amber, who had been shot in the leg, and six-year-old sister Amelie. Incredibly, the attacker took pity on the family and bizarrely handed the children Mars bars before telling them: “Please forgive me, we are not monsters.”
On 21 September 2013, unidentified gunmen attacked the upmarket mall. The attack, which lasted until 24 September, resulted in at least 72 deaths, including 61 civilians, 6 Kenyan soldiers, and 5 attackers. Over 200 people were reportedly wounded in the mass shooting.
