KENYA UNDER ATTACK. _14 RIVERSIDE COMPLEX

Explosions and gunfire have hit a hotel complex in Nairobi, Kenya, where several vehicles are on fire. Police are not ruling out a terror attack, an official spokesman has said, and anti-terror officers have been sent to the DusitD2 hotel and office complex. Explosions and gunfire have been heard during what appears to be an attack on an upmarket hotel in the Kenyan capital Nairobi. “We are under attack,” one person in an office inside a complex in the DusitD2 hotel told the Reuters news agency via phone on Tuesday before hanging up. Police are refusing to rule out a terror attack at this moment in time and have sent anti-terror officers to the scene. Security forces helped to evacuate a large group of people while paramedics and firefighters were also on scene, reports said. One man was seen covered in blood as students were evacuated from a nearby university building following at least two explosions at a hotel in Nairobi. Photographs circulated on social media showed three cars ablaze by the entrance to the hotel grounds and what appeared to be a human leg lying on the floor. Four ambulances and a fire truck arrived at the scene as fleeing office workers told Reuters colleagues were still huddled under their desks. BY KITS MIIRO.
