While many of the same stores have moved back in, the mall's reopening has met with a mixed reaction from survivors of the assault that left 67 people dead, Kenyans and foreigners among them. AP

There is no visible evidence of the horrors that unfolded over the course of the brutal 80-hour siege. Walls have been plastered and repainted, shattered glass replaced. AP

Surveillance video from the mall showed gunmen casually shooting some civilians. They reportedly also tortured some hostages, according to military doctors who saw evidence of severed hands and noses. They hanged others. AP
