14 Hospitalised: Al Shabaab Grenade Pounds Kenya
A grenade attack in Kenya Capital Nairobi has left at least 14 innocent civilians seriously injured.
Witnesses told reporters they had seen some dead bodies but police is hesitant to confirm any deaths.
The incident happened in the morning hours of Monday when a suspected terrorist hurled a grenade into a popular Mwaura night club, according to Kenya police.
Security has reportedly been tightened in the city following the attack.
Police is yet to positively identify the mastermind of the murderous attack but it comes a day after the US Embassy in Nairobi warned Kenya authorities it had obtained actionable intelligence of an imminent strike.
"We haven’t pointed a finger at any one. But we suspect the Al Shabaab. The matter is still under investigation,” police publicist Charles Owino says.
Speculation is rife that Al Shabaab could be behind the attack.
Kenya a few days ago declared war on the Al Qaeda-linked terror organisation for a recent spate of kidnappings and terror at her border with Somalia.
Al-Shabaab threatened to retaliate against Kenya for desecrating her sovereignty, insisting Mwai Kibaki’s troops would soon feel the pain of bullets.
Police asked for vigilance among Kenyans.
