All hostages are believed to have been evacuated from a Nairobi shopping mall and Kenyan special forces are not encountering any resistance, a government spokesman told AFP late Monday.
He said the three-day-long siege by Islamist gunmen, which has left at least 62 dead and up to 200 wounded, was nearing the end.
"We think that everyone, the hostages, have been evacuated but we don't want to take any chances," said government spokesman Manoah Esipisu. "The special forces are doing their job and yes, I think we are near the end."
