Explosions and gunfire have rocked a five star hotel in the posh Nairobi suburb of Westlands in Kenya, in the latest terror attack that hit the city on Tuesday afternoon. The National Police Service of Kenya
has confirmed through its Twitter Account.
The attack was staged by the Al-Shabab at Dusit Hotel and Office complex at 14 Riverside Drive.
The NPS also confirmed that the Police and the Army were on site to engage the terrorists.
Somalia’s Al Shabab militants have claimed responsibility for the attack but have not given details. Hundreds if not thousands of lives are thought to be at risk because of the busy nature of the complex.
Local media reports that gunmen used explosions and fired at the guards to force their way into the hotel.
The five-star DusitD2 hotel has 101 rooms.
