Grenade attack on Nairobi nightclub injures 12

Text size Aa Aa

Kenyan police say an Islamist militant group may be behind a grenade attack on a nightclub in the capital, Nairobi.

At least a dozen people were hurt overnight when the explosive device was hurled into the bar by a man who reportedly fled the scene.

The blast comes just two days after the US embassy in Kenya warned of an “imminent threat” of a terrorist attack after Kenyan soldiers launched a campaign against Islamist al Shabaab rebels in southern Somalia.

Nairobi blames the militants for a wave of kidnappings of foreigners on Kenya soil that have threatened the country’s multi-million euro tourism industry.
