UNITED NATIONS, September 21 (Itar-Tass) - U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is “following closely and with alarm” the attack on a shopping mall in Nairobi, his Spokesperson Martin Nesirky said on Saturday, September 21.
“The Secretary-General has spoken to President Uhuru Kenyatta and expressed his concern as well as offering his solidarity as the Kenyan authorities handle the incident,” he said.
Ban is being regularly briefed by his senior advisers, the spokesperson added.
According to eyewitness reports, a group of gunmen stormed the upscale shopping mall Westgate in Nairobi several hours ago and opened fire at the shoppers, taking seven people hostage.
The Kenyan law enforcement agencies consider the incident a terrorist act. Police have cordoned off the shopping mall. An anti-terrorist unit has entered the building and is searching it now.
