Kenyan troops are "in control" of Nairobi's Westgate shopping mall, the Kenyan interior ministry announced overnight Monday.

"We're in control of Westgate," the ministry said in a post on Twitter, some 60 hours after Islamist gunmen stormed the complex and massacred at least 62 people.

"Our forces are combing the mall floor by floor looking for anyone left behind. We believe all hostages have been released," the ministry said.
