IED's used in twin detonations: Police

16 May 2014, 18:03 William Korir

Nairobi - Police have confirmed that the devices used in the Gikomba blasts that have so far left 10 people dead were timed devices.

The blasts took place Friday afternoon at the busy Gikomba market, to the east of the city when the two devices exploded, one in a matatu and another in a market area.

According to Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo, the blasts were detonated at the same time, approximately 2.30 PM.

" They both went off at the same time which means they were very well pre-planned, he said.

He also confirmed that police were making headway on the matter and urged members of the public to remain calm as well as help the police with any leads that may lead to the prevention and possible arrest of terror suspects.

" We ask  members of the public to remain calm as well as vigilant as we continue with investigations that may lead to the arrest and prevention of future attacks, he added.

This is the latest in a spate of attacks that have targeted public service vehicles, which will likely build anxiety amongst Kenyans.

Just two weeks ago, nine Kenyans were killed in attacks also on PSV's, one in Nairobi and the other in Mombasa.
