Kenya's shilling gains ground; recovers after weakening over attack

NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya's shilling firmed on Wednesday, clawing back some its losses from the previous trading session when it had weakened due to a militant attack on a hotel complex in the capital.

At 1232 GMT, commercial banks quoted the shilling at 101.55/75 to the dollar, compared with Tuesday's close of 101.70/90.

Kenyan security forces killed the militants who stormed the upscale Nairobi hotel compound, taking at least 14 lives and forcing hundreds of others to make terrifying escapes, the government said on Wednesday.
