Nairobi hotel complex comes under attack

An upmarket hotel complex in Kenya's capital Nairobi has come under attack Tuesday, with an explosion and heavy gunfire.

Police are calling it a terrorist attack.

There are reports of fatalities and injuries.

The complex houses the Dusit hotel and other offices.

Witnesses say they saw 4 armed men enter the complex.

Several vehicles were burned in the blast and people were being rushed, even carried, from
the scene.

In 2013 al-Shabab extremists burst into the luxury Westgate shopping center, hurling grenades and starting a days-long siege that left 67 people dead.

Al Shabaab is also claiming responsibility for this latest attack.
