Explosion inside Nairobi minibus kills at least 4

14 December 2013, 21:06

Nairobi - At least four people were killed on Saturday after a device exploded inside a passenger van in Nairobi, police said, in what appears to be the first attack inside Nairobi since the deadly terrorist assault on Westgate mall in September.

The explosion happened as the minibus was traveling from Eastleigh neighborhood of Nairobi to the city center, said Benson Kibue, chief of police. Investigators believe an improvised explosive device was used in the attack that injured at least 25 others, he said.

Eastleigh is known for its large population of ethnic Somalis. The neighborhood came under fresh scrutiny by investigators following the Westgate attack.

A Western official familiar with the Westgate attack investigation told The Associated Press last month that all four attackers were ethnic Somalis who had spent time in Eastleigh. The official confirmed that all four gunmen arrived in Kenya in June and attended a gym in the neighborhood.
