Topic: Suspected grenade attack on Kenyan bus kills four: police

A suspected grenade attack on a minibus in Kenya's capital on Saturday killed at least four people near a Somali-dominated area of the city, police said, an incident that mirrors explosions last year that were blamed on Somali militants. Last year a series of such attacks in and around the Eastleigh area of Nairobi were blamed on Somalia's al Shabaab Islamist group. Al Shabaab said its gunmen carried out the mall attack to force Kenya to withdraw troops from Somalia where they are part of an African peacekeeping mission battling with the Islamists. "So far I can confirm that four people have died in the explosion," Benson Kibui, Nairobi county police commander, told Reuters, without giving details.
