Canadian national among those suspected of helping gunmen in deadly Nairobi attack

Kenyan police detain nine people in connection with deadly hotel attack

Police who are investigating this week's extremist attack on a Nairobi hotel complex asked the court that the suspects be held for 30 days in order for the police to complete their investigations, which the court granted.

Sixteen Kenyans including a police officer, a U.S. survivor of the September 11 2001 Al-Qaeda attacks on the United States, and a British development worker were among the dead in the attack. Another four gunmen died.

Officials suspect the alleged accomplices, including two taxi drivers and an agent for a mobile phone-based money service, of "aiding and betting" the attackers who stormed the complex on Tuesday afternoon and were killed by Wednesday morning.

"Whether through comparison of information against Interpol's global databases, or the issuance of a notice to identify a victim, locate a wanted person, or seek additional information on suspects, Interpol is offering all necessary assistance to help bring those responsible to justice", said Stock.

Abdihakim and the other suspects - Joel Nganga Wainaina, Oliver Kanyango Muthee, Gladys Kaari Justus and Osman Ibrahim - are being held on suspected terror offences.

Director of public prosecutions Noordin Haji says the investigations are complex and transnational and require sufficient time to uncover the entire "criminal syndicate".

Meanwhile, Panama's President Juan Carlos Varela said that 45 Panamanian cadets were present during the attack, with two injured. Defense Minister Guillermo Botero said on Friday the auto was driven by ELN explosives expert Jose Aldemar Rojas.

Police earlier identified a Kenyan military officer as the father of a suspect in the assault.

The police officer did not say when the other seven were arrested. The police official spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media.

According to the police, 11 suspects have been arrested in connection with the attack.

Kenya plans to allow many more private security guards around the country to carry firearms following a deadly attack by Islamic extremists in Nairobi. Shop owners temporarily closed businesses to protest against extremism, and crowds gathered.

Officials have released few details about the five-man assault team that carried out Tuesday's siege at the dusitD2 hotel complex, an attack that killed 21 people and was claimed by al Shabaab, a Somalia-based al Qaeda affiliate.
