Kenyan authorities have said nine persons have been arrested, following the attack on a luxury hotel that killed at least 21 people in Nairobi, the BBC has said.
Five Al Shabaab militants, who were later killed by Kenyan forces, stormed the DusitD2 hotel and business complex on Tuesday, with one of them detonating a suicide vest before others shot at people.
The report also quoted officials as saying that investigation will continue, to find those who helped the terrorists organize the attack.
Kenyan media have also reported that the wife of one of the suspected attackers has been arrested in Kiambu county, north of Nairobi.
Police said they had identified Ali Salim Gichunge, also known as Farouk, through the car used in the attack.
The Standard newspaper reports that neighbours said the suspect and his wife had put up properties in their home up for sale before the attack, saying they were “moving out of Nairobi this week”.
The Somalia-based terrorist group, which released a statement after the attack, called it “a response” to US President, Donald Trump’s controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
