Heavy gunshots and explosions rocked the scene for the better part of Tuesday as security officers moved in to flush out the criminals said to be five in number.

At least three cars were reduced to ashes and scores injured following the attack, which came on the anniversary of the El Ade terror attack that claimed lives of more than 100 Kenyan soldiers in Somalia.

According to police spokesperson Charles Owino, over 50 people were rescued during the night operation.

The terrorists were, however, holed up in one of the buildings and gunshots could still be heard on Wednesday morning.

The militia group al-Shabaab has since claimed responsibility for the seemingly well orchestrated attack at 14 Riverside Drive.
