Fighting continued into the night, hours after the Somali Al-Shabaab gunmen invaded Nairobi’s upscale DusitD2 hotel-cum-office complex on Tuesday, Jan. 15. Kenyan anti-terror forces were battling the terrorists heavily armed with automatic weapons to regain control of the huge complex. The number of casualties is unclear, although witnesses report seeing up to five dead bodies inside the building. Equally unknown is the hostage situation, although many of the people holed up in restaurants and offices have been rescued. According to first reports, a suicide bomber and at least four gunmen stormed the complex that contains a luxury hotel, offices, a bank, shops and other businesses, and foreign missions. Cars outside the building were set on fire. The Somali Al-Shabaab took responsibility. Anti-terror police had to decide the location of the gunmen before going in without risking the lives of possible hostages. Nairobi police commander Philip Ndolo said officers had cordoned off the area around Riverside Drive. In 2013, Islamist terrorists killed 67 people in a siege lasting for days at Nairobi’s Westgate shopping center.
