‘Four Killed’ as Explosions Hit Kenya Bus Terminal
At least four people have been killed and dozens of others injured after a grenade attack on a bus terminal in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, officials say.
Witnesses say three grenades were hurled from a vehicle passing the bus station in central Nairobi.
Police blamed the attack on militants of the Somali Islamist group al-Shabab.
The incident is similar to attacks last October when one person was killed and many injured after grenades were thrown into a bar and a bus station.
That attack happened just days after the Kenyan military had crossed into Somalia to fight the Somali miitants and was also blamed on al-Shabab.
“This is a cowardly act by al-Shabab elements,” police spokesman Charles Owino is quoted by the AFP news agency as saying at the bus station. “But we will not relent in the war. We will get them and we will continue with the war.”
However, no group has said it carried out the attack.
