An American businessman who reportedly survived the 9/11 World Trade Centre terror attack in 2001 is among the 21 people killed Tuesday when militants stormed a hotel and office complex in Nairobi, Kenya.
Kenya's information minister says the government's quick reaction to a deadly extremist attack in Nairobi this week reflects improvements in its ability to respond to such brazen assaults on civilian targets.
2014: In November 2014, members of Somalia's al-Shabab armed group hijacked a bus in Kenya and killed 28 non-Muslims on board.
The Somalia-based terrorist group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack.
More than 700 civilians were moved to safety during the 20-hour siege in the upmarket Westlands neighbourhood which ended on Wednesday morning.
"Five terrorists were eliminated, and subsequent investigations by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations have yielded the arrest of two key suspects believed to have facilitated the attack, and they are in custody assisting police with the investigation", Boinett added.
On LinkedIn, Dahir said he was passionate about photography and sharing "the stories of vulnerable people especially the voiceless victims of violence in order to educate the world about the detrimental impacts of war".
Sixteen Kenyans including a policeman, an American survivor of the September 11, 2001 al Qaeda attacks on the United States, and a British development worker were among the dead in the hotel complex, Nairobi police chief Joseph Boinnet said.
The government said late Tuesday that buildings were secure.

The Latest Federal agencies told to hold off pay raises
The White House and a spokesperson for the vice president did not respond to requests for comment from the Post . Congress enacted a law capping pay for top federal executives in 2013 and renewed it each year.
The dead comprised 16 Kenyan nationals, one Briton, one American and three individuals of African descent who are yet to be identified.
The bloodshed in Kenya's capital appeared created to inflict maximum damage to the country's image of stability and its tourism industry, an important source of revenue. However, gunfire continued into Wednesday morning, and dozens of trapped people were rescued overnight.
"Six other bodies were found at the scene".
Ken Njoroge, CEO of a company in the DustiD2 complex that offers mobile banking services, said he was unable to locate several employees.
The Kenya Red Cross said it was helping families searching for loved ones missing since the attack began.
The president said he did not know how many attackers were involved.
The police tweeted that security teams were still looking for remaining explosives and urged "the public not to panic should they hear a blast since it will be a safe blast".
Kenyan development professionals Abdalla Dahir and Feisal Ahmed, from consulting firm Adam Smith International (ASI), were having lunch together at the Secret Garden restaurant in the grounds of the hotel when the suicide bomber struck.
Among those killed in Kenya was Luke Potter, who worked for global development charity Gatsby.
