UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned the Dusit D2 Al Shabaab attack terming it is a "horrible terrorist attack".

He was among a number of world leaders who added their voice to denounce the incident that has caused tension in the country.

An American State Department spokesperson also conveyed the country's sympathies on the attack.

"We condemn this senseless act of violence," the spokesperson stated, adding, "all Mission personnel are safe and accounted for. The U.S. Embassy has actively offered assistance to local authorities."

Attackers Still in the Building

By Wednesday morning the attackers' faces had been unveiled by CCTV footage collected at the Dusit complex as it showed how they gained access into the building.

Interior CS Fred Matiang'i conveyed that they had secured the building except for the 7th floor where the assailants are believed to be hiding out with a number of hostages.

"The security teams have evacuated scores of Kenyans and other nationalities from the buildings.

"We are now in the final stages of mopping up the area and securing evidence and documenting the the consequences of the unfortunate events," Dr Matiang'i stated.
