Blast in downtown Kenyan capital kills one

Downtown Nairobi has seen a series of grenade attacks over the last year, with one such attack killing nine people.



Nairobi: A Kenyan police chief says a blast on a busy street in the capital, Nairobi, has killed at least one person.

The blast last evening happened near a military air base, and Kibuchi said authorities will try to determine if the base or military personnel were the intended target.
