Six heavily armed gunmen blasted their way into a luxury hotel and office complex, shot several people dead, wounded many and took hostages in a terror attack that sent people fleeing into the streets.

The attack was still underway by press time at 9pm, as the elite Recce Squad battled the gunmen and rescued people who are were trapped in their offices.

At least five bodies were lying at the reception and bar area and victims were rushed to nearby hospitals including MP Shah, Avenue the Aga Khan, Nairobi and Kenyatta National Hospital. There were no official tallies of dead or injured.

Al Shabaab is behind the latest terrorist attack in Nairobi. It is still ongoing.

There was the Westgate Mall Terrorist Attack on September 21, 2013.

An American businessman who was killed when extremists launched an assault at an upscale hotel complex in Nairobi, Kenya, on Tuesday was a survivor of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks and was “trying to make a positive change” in the country, his family said.

Jason Spindler, who would have turned 41 next Tuesday, was among the 14 people killed when explosions and gunfire erupted in DusitD2 hotel complex, which includes bars, restaurants, offices and banks in the Kenyan capital, said I-DEV International, the company he co-founded.

The U.S. State Department said an American citizen was killed in Tuesday’s attack, but did not release his identity.

Among the 21 killed is Jason Spindler. He was at the World Trade Center when it got attacked on 9/11.  :(
