5 KILLED IN NAIROBI GRENADES ATTACK

>

At least five people have been killed,, on Saturday 03/10/2012, and dozens of others injured after a grenade attack on a bus terminal in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, officials said.

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 (see -Nairobi 10.24.11).

That attack happened just days after the Kenyan military had crossed into Somalia to fight the Somali militants and was also blamed on al-Shabab. However, no group has said it carried out the attack (see – Almadow Operation).
