"I know many people who are in hospitals right now, who are wounded," said Joshua Ngao. "I've been trying to ask how everything is going. It's very scary, when you know the place, you know the people, and you know some of the people who have been involved."

The Kenyan military announced on Twitter that three "terrorists" have been killed but more than 10 Kenyan defense force soldiers are reported injured.
