Israeli forces have joined Kenyan troops in the effort to save hostages from al-Qaida-linked Somali terrorists at a Nairobi mall where gunmen killed at least 59 people on Saturday, AFP reported on Sunday.

"The Israelis have just entered and they are rescuing the hostages and the injured," AFP quoted a security source as saying.

Kenyan Foreign Minister Ole Lenku said earlier Sunday that an unknown number of hostages remained in the mall, held by an estimated 10-15 gunmen.
