The gunmen forced their way into student dormitories and it took more than six hours for local security forces to gain control of the situation. According to the New York Times, the Kenyan National Disaster Operation Center says that 65 people had been hospitalized mostly for gunshot wounds and four had been critically hospitalized and transported to Nairobi. Al-Shabab, the East African extremist group, has been associated with the attack and some hostages were taken with them.
