(AP) A Kenya Red Cross official says 30 people have been killed in an attack on an upscale Nairobi mall.


Abbas Gullet said Saturday the death toll is likely to rise from the attack that saw gunmen using grenades and gunfire.


The al-Qaida-linked Somali militant group claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.


A statement from al-Shabab on its official Twitter feed Saturday says the attacks are retribution for military action by Kenya inside Somalia. The group said it was now shifting the battlefield to Kenya.


The group said its fighters entered Nairobi's upscale Westgate Mall at around noon and were still inside more than ten hours later. Kenyan military special forces had entered the mall in an effort to end the standoff.
