Nairobi (Kenya): Police in Nairobi say four people have died after a car bomb blast just outside a police station in central Nairobi.
David Kimaiya, the inspector general of police, said two police officers were among those killed in the explosion yesterday.
A reporter at the scene said it appeared that the blast ripped apart the back end of a sedan. The explosion happened near a police station`s main gate.
Terror warnings have been a constant in Kenya in recent months, particularly after September`s attack on Westgate Mall that killed at least 67 people.
Most of the small-scale attacks and explosions are blamed on al-Shabab, the militant group in Somalia that has vowed revenge attacks in Kenya because Kenyan troops moved into southern Somalia in 2011.
