NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A blast near a military base in Kenya's capital city has wounded eight people.
Kenya Red Cross spokesman Javis Sunday says three of the eight are in critical condition after the blast Wednesday evening.
The blast went off in a Somali neighborhood of Nairobi known as Little Mogadishu. Kenya has seen a series of small-scale explosions over the last year, many from grenades.
Kenyan troops moved into Somalia in late 2011, prompting al-Shabab militants in Somalia to vow revenge attacks inside Kenya. Al-Shabab sympathizers are suspected in many of the blast attacks, though authorities have not clearly linked all the attacks to al-Shabab or its sympathizers.
