Kenyan security forces will soon end a Nairobi shopping mall siege, Interior Minister Joseph Ole Lenku said Monday, with Islamist attackers still fighting but left with no way out of the complex.

"We think the operation will come to an end soon," Lenku told a press conference. "We are in control of all the floors, the terrorists are running and hiding in some stores... there is no room for escape."
