The five-star DusitD2 hotel complex in Nairobi, was attacked by gunmen with explosions and gunfire being heard from the building, on Tuesday. Somali militant organisation Al-Shabaab has since claimed responsibility for the attack.
Plumes of smoke were seen rising above the Westlands suburb with gunshots being heard in the background.
The standoff between the militants and police is still reportedly ongoing.
At least one person has been confirmed dead in the attack with at least another four people injured.
