Second blast in Nairobi, 1 dead

25 October 2011, 09:02

Nairobi -A second blast was heard in the Kenyan capital Nairobi on Monday evening, at a bus stop, that left one person dead and fifteen others injured, barely 24 hours after another grenade was hurled inside a pub on Mfangano Street, leaving scores wounded, Capital News reports.

Mathew Iteere, the Kenyan Police Commissioner said that there was no firm evidence yet to link the bar attack and second blast to Somalia's al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab rebels. Senior officials from the group declined to comment.

The wounded were rushed to the Kenyatta National Hospital(KNH) with various injuries sustained in the attack that occurred at the bustling OTC bus terminus.

According to the witnesses and the police, the explosion occurred shortly after 8pm, as passengers were scrambling for public transport at the congested bus terminus located near the Salvation Army headquarters.
