The death toll grew to 30 people in Saturday's attack by gunmen on an upscale shopping mall in the Kenyan capital, leading to a fierce gun battle with police and a hostage standoff, authorities said.

Several hours after the attack, Al-Shabaab, an al Qaeda-linked militant group based in Somalia, claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.

"The Mujahideen entered #WestgateMall today at around noon and are still inside the mall," the Islamic extremist group said on its Twitter account.

One suspect was killed, said a Kenyan official who did not want to be identified because of the sensitivity of the information. There were also 100 people injured, the official said.
