At least 21 killed as Kenya hotel siege is declared over

At least 21 killed as Kenya hotel siege is declared over
CNN:

An American and a Briton were among the people killed when armed militants targeted the DusitD2 compound Tuesday, an upmarket cluster of shops and hotel facilities in the Kenyan capital.
"The security operation at Dusit complex is over, and all the terrorists eliminated," President Uhuru Kenyatta told reporters without giving details. He called the attackers terrorists.
More than 700 people were safely evacuated during the attack, he said.Surveillance footage shows the moment one of the attackers self-detonated a suicide vest in the foyer of the hotel, leaving behind billowing smoke as people fled. Before the explosion, another man walked by, stared at the attacker and kept walking.Shortly before Kenyatta declared the attack over, gunshots and explosions could still be heard at the scene.

More bodies recovered at the scene

Authorities recovered six more bodies from the scene late Wednesday, according to Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett. That brought the death toll to 21.
Sixteen Kenyans, one Briton, one American and three unidentified people of African origin are among the dead, he said. Twenty-eight others have been hospitalized.
Jason Spindler, an American who survived the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, was among those killed in the attack. He was co-founder and managing director of I-DEV International, a firm advising on business strategy for emerging markets.
A British man is also among the dead, the UK high commissioner to Kenya said. Development organization Gatsby Africa identified him as Luke Potter, head of its forestry and tea portfolio.

Men armed with guns and explosives burst into a hotel complex in Nairobi, killing at least 21 people in an attack that lasted hours and ended Wednesday morning.
