People from around the world also sent messages of peace and urged everyone to rally behind Kenyans as they fight the attackers.

A private citizen identified as Inayat Kassam, who is a licensed gun holder as well as an experienced combatives and shooting instructor, is one of those who was spotted helping victims from the scene of the attack.

Some also pleaded for donations of food and drinks for officers still at the scene.

This is what Kenyans had to say about their security forces and humanitarian agencies some of whom are still holed up at 14 Riverside in a bid to flush out the attackers.
