Several killed in attack on upscale Nairobi hotel complex

Several people are killed after gunmen blast their way into a hotel and office complex in Nairobi. Somali extremist group al Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack on 14 Riverside Drive. Also, there are celebrations among supporters of Laurent Gbagbo and concern from victims of the 2010-11 post-electoral violence, after the former Ivorian president is acquitted of war crimes by ICC judges. The decision may also weigh heavily on the International Criminal Court's credibility.
