Explosions and gunshots shattered the afternoon peace in Westlands, Nairobi yesterday when gunmen launched an attack on Dusit D2 hotel.

Employees of several firms in the vicinity and guests who were trapped in the hotel and in their offices in nearby buildings took social media to announce the attack and ask Kenyans to pray for them.

Security officers from different governmental agencies answered distress calls and launched rescue operations that saw hundreds of terrified victims evacuated and the injured ferried to city’s hospitals.
