Nothing a good old fashioned “interfaith” conference can’t smooth over.
(BBC) — One child has been killed and three seriously hurt, police say, in a grenade attack on a church’s Sunday school in the Kenya capital, Nairobi.
The attacker targeted St Polycarp’s church on Juja Road.
A police spokesman said they suspected sympathisers of Somalia’s al-Shabab Islamist militants were to blame.
Kenyan troops are at present part of an African Union force that has forced al-Shabab from its last Somali urban stronghold of Kismayo.
The Daily Nation quoted local police as saying that a number of those hurt at the church were injured in a stampede after the attack.
The police spokesman, Charles Owino, told Reuters news agency: “We suspect this blast might have been carried out by sympathisers of al-Shabab.
