The terrorist attack at a shopping mall in Kenya is prompting increased security at the Mall of America.
The facility sent out a statement stating..."Mall of America continues to monitor the tragic events unfolding in Kenya with the help of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
We are deeply saddened by the events and our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.
Mall of America has implemented extra security precautions, some may be noticeable to guests, and others won't be.
We will continue to follow the situation, along with law enforcement, and will remain vigilant as we always do in similar situations.
The safety and security of our guests, employees and tenants remains our top priority."
While the River Hills Mall in Mankato did not want to comment on their security procedures, they did say they have taken additional steps in light of the attack in Kenya.
