Another Canadian killed in the attack at an upmarket shopping centre in Kenya has been identified by family members as Vancouver-area businessman Naguib Damji.
Niece Gulnaaz Lalji told CBC News that her uncle was having coffee in Nairobi's Westgate mall when the attack began.
At least 68 people were killed, including Canadian diplomat Annemarie Desloges, in attack by heavily armed militants that began Saturday.
The al-Qaeda-linked group al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the attack, which reportedly targeted non-Muslims.
After a prolonged and ongoing stand-off with the militants, who took hostages, Kenya's security forces launched a final offensive Sunday night.
