    Farah Maalim said Monday that the attacks took place after nightfall.

    Gunshots and an explosion rang out in the city of Garissa as the gunmen stormed the two polling stations. It wasn't immediately clear if the attackers took any hostages.

    The gunmen were in control of election material.
