Heavy military presence at Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi

Hostages are being held in a shopping centre in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, after a deadly assault by al-Shabab militants.

At least 39 people died when members of the Somali Islamist group stormed the Westgate centre on Saturday.

There is now a heavy military presence in and around the centre - including armoured vehicles - and gunfire can be heard from inside the building.
