Four Somali men were charged in Kenya on Monday in connection with the Sept. 21 attack on a Nairobi mall that killed dozens.

The four suspects, who are not accused of being gunmen at the Westgate Mall, are charged with helping to carry out the attack by “supporting a terrorist group,” according to the charge sheet, AFP reports. All four men pleaded not guilty, and were remanded into custody without a lawyer.

At least 67 people were killed in September when gunmen attacked the upscale mall, where witnesses described gunman executing people at close range. All of the gunman are believed to have been killed during a four-day siege following the attack.
