Breaking News! Nairobi City Under Attack!

There has been an explosion today in Nairobi in what is suspected to be a suicide bomber attack. Apparently, this was carried out by a man carrying explosives in a bag along the city’s Moi Avenue (which is near a very busy commuter bus stop and two major international Hotels – Ambassador Hotel and Hilton Hotel Nairobi) Only one person has been confirmed dead at the moment but sources at the scene say that there may be more than 10 casualties.
 
Unconfirmed reports suggest that the suicide bomber timer settings were wrong and that the bomb exploded prematurely. All possible scenarios based on the location and the timing of the explosion suggests several targets most likely the city’s transport vehicles branded CITY HOPPA. The man may have been headed to board one of the buses but did not succeed as the bomb exploded before he reached the target. The area has been sealed off for more investigation.

More details coming soon.
