A strange twist of events for CNN senior international correspondent Nic Robertson, who covered the Westgate mall attack in Nairobi: on his first day of a month-long reporting rotation in the U.S., he was assigned to cover another mall shooting, at the Westfield Garden State Plaza in New Jersey. Robertson was live outside the mall last night.

On “New Day” today, he filed a report on the New Jersey mall shooting, right on the heels of Monday’s report on the hunt for the leader of Al-Shabaab, the group behind the Nairobi mall attack.
