NAIROBI, KENYA, HOTEL AND OFFICE COMPLEX ROCKED BY EXPLOSIONS, GUNFIRE

A blast and heavy gunfire sent workers fleeing for their lives at an upscale hotel and office complex in Kenya’s capital on Tuesday.

“We are under attack,” one person in an office inside the complex told Reuters, before hanging up.

Several vehicles were burning and gunfire continued for several minutes, witnesses said.

“I just started hearing gunshots, and then started seeing people running away raising their hands up and some were entering the bank to hide for their lives,” a woman working in a neighboring building said.

Nairobi suffers from violent robberies but has also been targeted by Somali militants.
