Blast rocks Kenyan capital


Sirens blared as emergency service crews rushed to Nairobi’s Moi Avenue, a major road running through the city’s central business district, which would have been busy during the lunch hour.

“There was a huge bang followed by people screaming and shouting,” said one witness who declined to be named.

Clothing, shoes and blown out windows from a store hit by the blast littered the road.

It was not immediately clear what caused the explosion. There has been a string of attacks in Nairobi and the port city of Mombasa blamed on Somali militants and their sympathizers since Kenya sent troops into Somalia in October.
