NAIROBI - Kenya's president said on Sunday security forces confronting militants in a Nairobi shopping mall had as good a chance "as we can hope for" of neutralizing the attackers and said Kenya wanted to confirm a claim of responsibility by Somali Islamists.

"The criminals are now located in one place within the building. With the professionals on site, I assure Kenyans that we have as good a chance to successfully neutralize the terrorists as we can hope for," he said in an address.

He said Somali al-Shabaab militants had said they were behind the attack that began on Saturday, but Kenya was undertaking investigations to "conclusively establish" who was responsible.
