Deadly Kenya grenade attack hits children in church0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:43 pm

One child has been killed and three seriously hurt, police say, in a grenade attack on a church’s Sunday school in the Kenya capital, Nairobi.

The attacker targeted St Polycarp’s church on Juja Road. Sympathisers of Somalia’s al-Shabab Islamist militant group, angry over Kenya’s role in the UN-backed intervention force, were blamed by the police. A mob rounded on Somalias later, who were living close to a church, using sticks and stones in what is suspected to have been a revenge attack. 13 people had been injured in this revenge attack, in the suburb of Eastleigh, and 2 police officers had been killed near in the border of Somalia in an ambush within the town of Garissa.

Reports suggested a number of those hurt at the church were injured in a stampede after the attack. According to the local authorities, 3 children were seriously hurt, and a greater number suffered light injuries. The Red Cross before this had said however that 6 children were critically wounded.

Nairobi and Mombasa have suffered a string of such grenade attacks since last October when Kenya sent troops into Somalia. These attacks in Mombasa escalated after an Islamic preacher was killed in a drive-by shooting last August.

These attacks are very shocking, but what are your opinions? Share them by clicking “Read More and Comment”.
