WHEN I WAS WALKING INTO THE HOTEL, I HEARD LOUD GUNSHOTS. BEFORE I KNEW IT, WE WERE RUNNING HELTER-SKELTER TO RUN AWAY FROM THE TERRORISTS.
DURING THE COMMOTION, WE HEARD A GROUP OF AROUND FOUR MEN SPEAKING TO THEMSELVES, SAYING ‘UA HAO, UA HAO (KILL THEM, KILL THEM) BUT I DID NOT SEE THEM. HOWEVER, A GROUP OF THREE WOMEN, WHO I WAS WITHIN HIDING, SAW THE ATTACKERS’ FACES.Confirmed reports are that Al Shabaab terror group orchestrated the attack.
