Kenya mourns six colleagues who died in extremist hotel attack

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) – Kenyans gathered to mourn some of the 21 victims of the extremist attack in Nairobi last week.

Six employees of digital payments com-pany Cellulant were being remembered yesterday following the January 15 attack by gunmen and a suicide bomber on the dusitD2 hotel and office complex in Kenya’s capital. All five attackers died.

The memorial programme said a group of 17 Cellulant staff members tried to flee their offices during the attack but a “barrage of gunfire” forced some of them to retreat.

The memorial programme describes the employees as “The Brave Six”.
