Update at 12:55 p.m. ET:
Telling his nation that security forces have "ashamed" those who attacked a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday declared "we have defeated the monster of terrorism."
As night fell in Kenya and after four days that captured attention around the world, it appeared the crisis was over.
Kenyatta said, as the BBC reports, that the death toll from Saturday's attack by Somalia-based terrorists and the siege that followed was:
-- 61 civilians.
-- 6 security officers.
