Death Toll in Kenya Hotel Attack Rises

The death toll in the attack of a luxury hotel complex in Kenya has risen to at least 14 people, according to Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The president  declared the attack over  Wednesday morning.

He told reporters that more than 700 people were evacuated.

Jason Spindler, an American in Kenya for business, was among those killed in the attack.

On Tuesday, police said an explosion went off in a parking lot of the complex in the capital city of Nairobi, followed by a suicide bomber in the hotel lobby.

Police said there was also heavy gunfire, leaving many people trapped in the complex for hours.

Authorities are calling it a suspected terrorist attack.

Al-Shabaab — a terrorist organization linked to al Qaeda — has claimed responsibility for the attack.

It's unclear how many people were injured, but local hospitals have urged residents to donate blood.
