Developing Story: Explosion in Nairobi

Nairobi, Kenya
Monday June 11 2007

There has been an explosion today in Nairobi in what is suspected to be a suicide bomber attack. Apparently, this was carried out by a man carrying explosives in a bag along the city's Moi Avenue (which is near a very busy commuter bus stop and two major international Hotels - Ambasadeur Hotel and Hilton Hotel Nairobi)
Only one person has been confirmed dead at the moment but sources at the scene say that there may be more than 10 casualties.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that the suicide bomber timer settings were wrong and that the bomb exploded prematurely. All possible scenarios based on the location and the timing of the explotion suggest several targets most likely the city's transport vehicles branded CITY HOPPA. The man may have been headed to board one of the buses but did not succeed as the bomb exploded before he reached the target. The area has been sealed off for more investigation.

Thanks for this timely post. Why would anyone target Nairobi with such an attack?
The first time this happened it targeted the US embassy but this one..or is it linked to the recent spat of insecurity in Nairobi?

Yeah. Can we blame Mungiki for it?
Well, They should know that this is not a place for them... or for such hideous acts. Kenyans love peace... and Their God.

Hello Pit
Whoever we blame, this act should be allowed to happen in Kenya. As you correctly put it, Kenyans love peace.

I missed the word NOT in my response. This act should not be allowed to happen in Kenya. Kenyans love peace.
