Not less than 6 killed and 18 injured,as explosion rocks Kenya



At least six people were killed and some 18 were wounded
by an explosion in what appears to be a “deliberate attack” in Nairobi,
Kenya, a senior Red Cross official tells CNN.
Nine of the injured were listed in critical condition at Kenyatta
National Hospital, the Kenya National Disaster Operation said on
its Twitter account. The other wounded people were treated “locally,”
the agency said.
“Our resolve & will to defend ourselves from those who intend to
harm us will never be discouraged,” the governor of Nairobi City
County, Evans Kidero, said in a tweet. “Our strength lies in our
national unity.”
The explosion occurred in Eastleigh, a largely Somali neighborhood,
east of the Nairobi city center.
Authorities have not said what caused the blast.
