Two injured in Nairobi IED explosion

Two people were injured on Saturday evening in an explosion on Latema Road along Tom Mboya Street in the Nairobi Central Business District.

According to preliminary reports, a middle-aged man had procured the help of a cart-puller to carry an unidentified package across the city.

The two reportedly walked together up to the the junction between Latema road and Tom Mboya street.

The stranger reportedly claimed to have forgotten his Identity Card at a shop across the street and excused himself to go back get it.

The improvised explosive device went off moments later with shrapnel hurting the cart-puller on the arm and injuring a newspaper vendor on the foot.

Police have secured the scene and are following leads for the arrest of the mystery man.

The explosion comes just days after 21 people perished in a terror attack at the 14 Riverside Drive which was perpetrated by terror group al-Shabaab.
