AFP, Monday 23 Sep 2013

Security forces have freed some but not all of the hostages in the Nairobi shopping mall siege, Kenya's police chief said Monday, shortly after a series of loud blasts.

"Thumbs up to our multi-agency team, we have just managed to rescue some hostages," police chief David Kimaiyo said in a message on Twitter on the third day of the standoff. "We're increasingly gaining advantage of the attackers."
