The police had earlier cordoned off a house on the outskirts of Nairobi where one of the attackers, identified by neighbours as Farouk, captured in CCTV footage from the Dusit terror attack lived.

One of the neighbours called the police after identifying the car that was abandoned near the dusitD2 gate which was used by the five terrorists who conducted the deadly attack.

Police say they have intensified the probe to uncover those who aided in the attack that has left 14 people dead.
