A four-year-old British boy survived the bloody Kenyan shopping mall attack after standing up to a terrorist gunman and telling him: “You’re a very bad man.”

Elliott Prior, from Windsor in southeast England, showed great courage when men with AK47s stormed the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi on Saturday, the Sun reports. He was protecting his mother Amber, who had been shot in the leg. As a gunman approached him, his mother and his six-year-old sister Amelie, he shouted: “You’re a bad man, let us leave.”

Surprisingly, the gunman appeared to take pity on the family. After going so far as to give Elliott and Amelie candy bars, he allowed them to escape with their mother, saying, according to the Sun: “Please forgive me, we are not monsters.”

Amber, a 35-year-old film producer, also rescued two other children from the mall, including a wounded 12-year-old boy whose mother had been murdered, and pushed them outside in a shopping trolley. Dramatic photos of the distraught-looking Amber, Elliott and Amelie coming out of the mall were then flashed around the world.

@CharlieCamp6ell Need to clarify whether he said "bad man" or "very bad man". Story has both, yet a gulf divides the two statements..

whats going on in Kenya shopping mall, is not good signs to world and for the world policy makers. Men killing men but now women killing whole families, small children, pregnant ladies. Sin is taking now wrong path. Watch the words of Al-shabaab-you kill our children so we have to kill yours children. Before doing this Al-shabaab must know who killed their children,not these innocent people but the world policy makers and Al-shabaab know very well who are the world policy makers. If Al-shabaab having guts,take revenge with these policy maker"s children not with these innocent people.Death of innocent people ,children,women and with their family never affect these policy makers unless otherwise you hurt them and their family. All these Al-shabaab can see in Syria,Iraq,Afghanistan. This is a message to Al-shabaab,donot take it otherwise.

@drkshatriya Sounded more like a threat to the so called policy makers to me. You just got an FBI file if you did not have one already.  Dummy you promoted violence to the muslim killers to go after policy makers. dumb ass.

@drkshatriya Killing children is never, ever, ever, ever, ever okay.  Not for war.  Not for retaliation.  Not for any religious purpose.  No god will protect a killer of children.  None.

@Openminded1 @drkshatriya  man, that is not a threat, that should be taken as warning from Al-shaabab, this time innocent people,next time policymakers.you can"t rule world by making two policies.one for rich and another for poor.
