Twin blasts shake Kenyan capital Nairobi

Two blasts have shaken the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, wounding at least one police officer.

The blasts struck the Eastleigh residential district, near the city's business district, late on Friday.

Police sources said the area targeted had a predominantly Somali population.

A string of attacks in Nairobi and Mombasa have been blamed on Somali militants, in retaliation for Kenya's decision to send troops into Somalia to pursue militants.

The latest blast happened 100m (yards) from a church on Nairobi's Juja Road, where an explosion on 30 September killed a nine-year-old child.

"We believe the first blast was intended to lure onlookers, members of the public, and that the second blast was meant to harm them," police spokesman Eric Kiraithe told Reuters.

"It is not immediately clear what caused the explosions, the bomb squad is on its way there," Wilfred Mbithi, an assistant police commissioner, told the news agency.

Kenya began its intervention in Somalia nearly a year ago after a spate of cross-border attacks blamed on al-Shabab.

Kenyan forces ousted the rebels from their last Somalia stronghold, Kismayo, last month.

whosoever is doing this bombings should immediately stop for the sake of the Somali community in Kenya. if this gets out of hand, it could trigger a brutal retaliation from the Kenyan people which could be devastating for us because Kenya is the only place so many of us now call home.

please stop

This is some of the dumbest and inexperienced bombings ever. if you wanna hurt Kenyans why go to Easleight, which hardly there are any Kenyans, and there is no police or military. why not do it in Downtown or predominately ruling class Kenyan neighborhoods.
one bomb in islii church, one girl dies, one bomb on islii street, one person dies, etc.

I don't think Somalis are behind this. Really, Somalis will face a big humiliation and disgrace from Allah because they enjoy life while their brothers are massacred by the Amisom.
