Westgate heroes reunited
Katherine Walton, 38, and Abdul Haji, a Kenyan businessman who was one of the armed civilians who spent hours pulling people out of Nairobi's ill-fated Westgate shopping mall, were reunited at the weekend .
At the emotional meeting, Haji was introduced to four-year-old Portia, with whom he was pictured in a dramatic image seen worldwide.
The young girl was photographed running towards Haji from a hiding place on the ground floor of the mall, where she and six others, including her mother and two younger sisters, had spent more than three hours hiding as gun battles blazed around them.
"I thought she was very, very brave," Haji said.
"I think most of us who were there, we thought the same, and this just gave us more motivation to go on and do what we were doing."
Walton described the hope she felt when she first saw Haji from her hiding place under a table outside a supermarket.
"It was such a relief to know that someone was going to get us and it was going to be over for us," she said.
Haji, a Muslim of Somali origin, went to the mall to find his brother but stayed on and helped to shepherd many terrified people to safety during the siege .
