Monday: Kenya Attack: Survivor/Former Somali PM, BC Mine Protest, Pakistan Christian Attacks, BlackBerry Sold, and more...



It began as just a regular Saturday shopping trip. Now, scores of visitors to a mall in Nairobi, Kenya, are dead, and dozens more are hostages, since Somali-based militants staged a coordinated attack.

Escape from Westgate. We'll reach two men who managed to flee the carnage -- one the former Somali prime minister, and the other a local politician who was very nearly shot in the head.

Contrary at the coal mine. The people of the Tahltan First Nations believe a site in a B.C. valley is sacred -- which is why they're doing everything they can to block a mining company from drilling.

Mobile home. BlackBerry is sold for 4.7 billion dollars, and the buyer says it's business-as-usual -- which is exciting for investors, but less so for the people who are set to be laid off.  

Their ears were the windows to the soul. Forty years ago today, a British club started a movement by playing rare and forgotten American records -- and tonight, I'll speak to the man who helped spread "Northern Soul".

And...the toilet is willing -- but the flush is weak. Across the U.S., sewer systems are clogging up with so-called "flushable wipes" -- and their growing popularity has sewage authorities feeling pretty bummed out.

As It Happens, the Monday edition. Radio that prefers to report on a come-from-behind victory.
