Six more bodies were found at the Dusit complex at 14 Riverside following the terror attack on Tuesday, while a police officer who was undergoing treatment succumbed to his injuries. On Wednesday, President Uhuru Kenyatta had said that the total number of people who had perished in the attack was 14, but Police IG Joseph Boinnet has indicated that the number has increased so far. The nationalities of the people who died are 16 Kenyan nationals, 1 Briton, 1 American, and 3 persons of African descent yet to be identified.

IG Boinnet said that five terrorists were also eliminated, and that 28 people were admitted in various hospitals in Nairobi. He said that subsequent investigations by the DCI have yielded the arrest of two key suspects believed to have facilitated the attack and are in custody assisting the police with the investigations. He appealed to all Kenyans to continue cooperating with the police and all the security agents in their joint effort to counter terrorism as well as all form of crime.
