Blast rocks Kenyan capital


A blast struck a shopping complex in Nairobi's business district during today's lunch hour, wounding more than two dozen people, but there was confusion over whether the explosion was caused by a bomb or electrical fault.

Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere told reporters it was too early to determine the cause of the blast. He said blackened wires inside the trading centre indicated a possible electrical fault and ruled out a grenade attack.

Two shopkeepers, however, told Reuters independently that they saw a man drop a bag inside the trading centre moments before the blast.
