Gunmen kill 14 in Kenya hotel compound attack claimed by Somali Islamists

NAIROBI (Reuters) - Gunmen blasted their way into a hotel and office complex in the Kenyan
capital on Tuesday, killing at least 14 people and sending workers diving under desks from an attack claimed by Somali Islamist group al Shabaab.







Eight hours after the assault began at Nairobi’s upscale 14 Riverside Drive complex, a burst of gunfire was heard in the area, suggesting the situation was not yet under control.

Scores of people were still hiding inside the complex, a security source said. A mortuary worker told Reuters around midnight (2100 GMT) that 14 people were killed in the attack.
