Today from Hiiraan Online:
Kenya police seize explosive material
Sunday, June 24, 2012
A Kenyan official says police seized material they believe can be used to assemble a bomb, a day after the U.S. warned of an imminent terrorist attack in Kenya.
A police official, who asked for anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press, said Saturday that three suspects dropped a bag and ran after police confronted them near a highly populated slum.
The official says police found 6 kilograms (13 pounds) of ammonium nitrate and other items they believe can be used to make a bomb.
Police said an improvised bomb killed 1 person and injured 32 others in downtown Nairobi last month. Officials believe ammonium nitrate was used to assemble that bomb.
Al-Qaida linked al-Shabab militants from Somalia have threatened to retaliate after Kenya sent troops to Somalia to pursue the militants.
