Photos and CCTV clips released shows four heavily armed terrorists accessing the Riverside Drive before they proceeded to blow up two cars at the parking in what appeared to push more people inside.
It is not clear whether they were only four attackers as captured by the surveillance cameras or they were more. Witnesses said they are familiar faces seen there regularly for days.
In the first CCTV footage (watch below) they are seen dividing themselves into two as they proceed into the Dusit Hotel where big number of people congregated.
This other CCTV footage show them making it past the empty parking. This was after they blew up three cars and forced scared people into the buildings.
They drove to the place in a Toyota Ractis KCN 340E, registered under Cynkim Investment Company Limited as established after online search of the National Transport and Safety Authority database. They forced their way in as they shot at security guards.
The attackers, Al-Shabaab has claimed is their fighters targeted the high-end Dusit hotel and other establishments within Riverside Drive in Westlands.
Number of people have been killed and dozen others still held hostage as security agents try to access and exterminate them. Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has assured that buildings around the place have been secured.
