complex “running away raising their hands up and … entering the bank to hide for their lives” at about 4pm local time
One said he had seen attackers wearing green clothes and carriying ammunition.
“We are under attack,” a person in an office inside a complex in the DusitD2 hotel told the Reuters news agency amid the early chaos, then hung up as thick black smoke billowed from the site where several vehicles were set ablaze.

“What I have seen is terrible. I have seen a human as I ran out and there is what looks like minced meat all over,” said one man who claimed he had been caught up in the suspected attack.
Local television reports described a confusing scene with paramedics having to wind their way through the area to reach the wounded.
Soldiers were later seen marshalling crowds and reporters at the complex in Riverside Drive.
The Somali militant group al-Shabaab claimed via its radio arm, Andalus, that it was “behind the attack”, but did not give details.

In 2013, al-Shabab extremists killed dozens of people during a days-long siege at Nairobi’s Westgate shopping centre, which is just over a mile away from the DusitD2 hotel.
A total of 67 people died in that attack.
Kenyan troops were among the African Union alliance forces that drove al-Shabaab out of Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital, in 2011.

The group, thought to have between 7,000 and 9,000 fighters, has been affiliated with al-Qaeda since 2012 and subscribes to the ultra-conservative Wahhabi Islamic creed.
Tuesday’s apparent attack took place three years to the day after al-Shabaab attacked a Kenyan military base in Somalia, killing scores of people. The group objects to the presence of Kenyan troops in the turbulent Horn of Africa nation.
