Two explosions and gunfire rock shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya

Two explosions and gunfire were heard at an upscale hotel and office complex in the Kenyan capital on Wednesday afternoon, said a woman working in a neighbouring building.

“We are under attack,” another person in an office inside a complex in the Dusit hotel told Reuters, then hung up. Local television showed smoke rising from the area.

The Nairobi police commander Philip Ndolo said they had cordoned off the area around Riverside Drive due to a suspected robbery.

Al-Shabaab claims responsibility – Al Jazeera.

A Somali journalist with Al Jazeera says Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the ongoing attacks. Hamza Mohamed tweeted that the group’s spokesperson told the gulf channel: “We are currently conducting an operation in Nairobi.”
