At least 21 people have been confirmed dead after the attack by Islamist militants on an upmarket hotel complex in Nairobi.
According to the Police Chief, Joseph Boinnet: “We wish to inform that, as of this evening… six other bodies were found at the scene and one police officer succumbed very suddenly to his injuries.”
He also confirmed that 16 Kenyans, one Briton, one American and three people of “African descent who are yet to be identified”.
28 other people who were injured in the attack had been admitted to hospital without giving details on their condition.
Kenyan security forces ended the attack early Wednesday after a 20-hour operation that rescued hundreds of people and left all five assailants dead, Boinnet had announced earlier.
