An explosion occurred this evening in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi at the Tom Mboya – Latema Road intersection in what is suspected to be an IED.
One person was reportedly injured in the 7pm incident.
Preliminary reports indicated that a man of Somali descent had hired a cart pusher to carry a box when the luggage went off.
The device inside the box is suspected to have been a improvised explosive device. The owner of the luggage ran away.
Police have secured the scene for forensic analysis.
The incident comes in the wake of a terror attack at the upmarket DusitD2 complex on 14 Riverside Drive on January 15 that claimed 21 lives.
