At least fifty nine people have been killed and one hundred and seventy five injured in yesterday’s attack on a Nairobi shopping center.

A Kenyan government minister, Joseph Lenku said one thousand people have managed to escape from Westgate centre after the assault by suspected al-Shabab militants.

He said between ten to fifteen attackers were still in the building, adding that it is not known how many civilians remain trapped in the shopping center.

Al-Shabab said it carried out the attack in response to Kenya’s military involvement in the war in Somalia.
