Seven people were killed and many more wounded when an apparent explosive device was hurled at a packed minibus in a predominantly Somali area of the Kenyan capital Nairobi today, police and the Red Cross said. Nairobi police chief Moses Nyakwama said the blast occurred on a so-called 'matatu', or local minibus, in the district of Eastleigh, where mainly Somalis or Kenyans of Somali origin live and which has been the target of other attacks in recent weeks.
