Families though say that they remain in the dark.
Speaking to a number of families of the missing, frustration was the theme of the day.
" We do not know what to do now. We are left to either pray or think that he could be dead," Julius Monari a brother to Geoffrey, a soldier on duty at Al Adde during the ill fated attack said.
It is thought that as many as 100 of the 240 soldiers who were at the camp could have died.
The KDF also did not state how many bodies have been found or the number of those saved from the attack.
