Bomb Attack in Nairobi Church left 1 Dead, 10 injured

At least one person has been killed and 10 wounded in a grenade attack on a church in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, police have said.

The attack targeted the God House of Miracle Church, in Negara neighborhood.

There has been a string of small arms attacks and explosions on Kenyan soil since Kenyan troops crossed the Somali border.

Kenyan police have blamed the strikes on Somalia’s al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab Islamists.

However, no-one has yet said they carried out the blast.

“I can confirm that one person is believed to be dead,” Kenya police spokesman Eric Kiraithe told Reuters.

Kenyan officials claim the attacks are a response to the Kenyan army’s incursion into Somalia, launched in October.

In March, at least six people were killed and more than 60 injured in an attack at a busy bus station in Nairobi when four grenades were thrown from a passing car.

Last October, grenades were thrown into a bar and bus station, killing one and injured many others.
