NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Multiple large blasts have rocked Kenya's Westgate Mall where a hostage siege is in its third day.

Associated Press reporters on the scene Monday heard multiple blasts and a barrage of gunfire. Black and grey smoke rose up from the mall.

Security forces have been attempting to rescue an unknown number of hostages inside the mall held by al-Qaida-linked terrorists.
