NAIROBI, Sep 21 – Gunmen who attacked a Nairobi shopping mall Saturday have taken at least seven hostages, police and security guards told an AFP reporter at the scene.

“They have seven hostages, confirmed,” an officer said as police went shop-by-shop to clear the mall and evacuate terrified people caught up in the incident.

An AFPTV reporter said police and security guards were trying to secure a multi-screen cinema complex inside the upmarket Westgate mall.

The reporter said she saw at least 20 people rescued from a toy shop on one of the upper floors of the mall.

A shop manager who managed to escape said at one point “it seemed that the shooters had taken control of all the mall”.
