A gun attack is underway at an upscale hotel in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, say witnesses, reports Euronews.

It followed at least one explosion at the same site earlier.

Workers at the hotel and office block were seen running for their lives, reports Reuters.

“We have sent officers to the scene, including from the anti-terrorism unit, but so far we have no more information,” police spokesman Charles Owino told Associated Press.

Somali Islamist militant group al Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the attack.
