Gun shots were heard before an explosion outside a mosque in Nairobi’s Eastleigh area near the junction of Muratina and Jam Streets.

The explosion is feared to be a grenade attack; report says lawmaker Yusuf Hassan Kamakunji feared among those hurt.

The blast makes it the second explosion there since Wednesday night. Local according to Nairobi’s police chief Moses Ombati. Ombati told Great Lakes Voice on phone that” it was too early to tell whether a grenade or a bomb caused the explosion and it was possible the casualty toll would rise.”

Kenyan authorities and communities alike have blamed Somali militants and their sympathizers for a wave of grenade and gun attacks in Kenya after Nairobi sent soldiers into neighboring Somalia last year to drive out Islamist rebel fighters with links to al Qaeda.

Tensions have risen in the past two months in Eastleigh, a part of Nairobi commonly dubbed “Little Mogadishu” because of its large Somali population.
