NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Associated Press journalists at the scene of a hostage standoff say a barrage of gunfire erupted from the upscale Kenyan mall Sunday morning.
Moments later two wounded Kenyan security forces were carried out of the Westlands shopping mall.
Kenyan authorities said Islamic extremist attackers held an unknown number of hostages in the Nairobi shopping center, after killing at least 39 and injuring 150 on Saturday.
Somalia's radical rebel group, al-Shabab, claimed responsibility for the attack in which they specifically targeted non-Muslims.
After assaulting the mall Saturday afternoon, the attackers were surrounded by a combined police and military force throughout the night.
Kenyans and foreigners were among those confirmed dead, including French and Canadians.
