Pathfinder Staff Safe and Accounted For After Attack in Nairobi
This weekend, several gunmen opened fire in a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, killing 62 and injuring 175. The gunmen took an undetermined number of hostages and although several have been released, it is unclear if all are accounted for.
On Monday, Kenyan forces reported they have taken control of all floors of the building, but caution that a few gunmen remain inside. Officials have yet to confirm who is behind the terrorist attack.
Pathfinder is relieved to report that all Kenya-based staff members are safe and accounted for. One staff member who was at the shopping center during the attack managed to escape unharmed on foot.
Pathfinder will continue to monitor the situation and will share further information as it becomes available. Our thoughts are with our Kenyan staff, their families, and the people of Kenya during this difficult time.
