At least four people were killed when a car bomb exploded outside a police station in a poor neighbourhood of the Kenyan capital Nairobi on Wednesday, the country’s interior ministry said.
Police officers had earlier stopped the saloon car at traffic lights and were taking the occupants for questioning when the bomb exploded, the ministry added.
“At least four people dead after a saloon exploded at Pangani police station. Two of them are police officers,” it said. It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack.
Pangani is located next to Nairobi’s Eastleigh district, an area populated by Somalis and targeted in past bomb and grenade attacks that police say Somali militants and their sympathisers have carried out.
