OTTAWA, Ontario —

Two Canadians have died in a terrorist attack at a shopping mall in Kenya.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office issued a statement confirming diplomat Annemarie Desloges died along with one other unidentified Canadian.

The statement called Desloges a distinguished public servant of the Department of Citizenship and Immigration who served in Canada's High Commission to Kenya.

Kenyan officials say at least 39 people were killed and 150 others were wounded in the assault.

Somalia's Islamic extremist group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility and says the attack was retribution for Kenyan forces' 2011 push into Somalia.
