Kenya Terror Attack and Shootout in Pictures
Kenyan security forces say they are attempting to clear the Westgate shopping complex in Nairobi in order to bring to an end the three-day siege.
Explosions and heavy gunfire were reported earlier as soldiers stormed the mall, where suspected al-Shabab militants are thought to be holed up. The Kenya Defence Forces said three “terrorists” had been killed and all escape routes sealed off. Flames and thick smoke continued to rise from the building.
