At least six passengers died on the spot when an explosion ripped apart a mini-bus in Nairobi’s Eastleigh estate on Sunday.
The mini-bus was on Eastleigh 2nd avenue and headed to Kariobangi.
Kenya Red Cross confirmed that at least 24 casualties have been transferred to the Kenyatta National Hospital.
Police and paramilitary personnel fired shots in the air to disperse rowdy groups who targeted civilians of Somali origin. The area is predominantly occupied by Somalis.
Initial reports indicated that an explosive device was hurled at the vehicle. Police are yet to confirm these reports.
