File under: al-Shabaab
#1 Happened on a matatu (minibus) coming out of Eastleigh. That is a major slum in Nairobi with many people with Somali ties. Sympathizers to jihadists and al Shebaab do live in this location. It will be nearly impossible for Kenya to stop these small-scale attacks that claim 6-10 lives - often with grenades or small quantities of explosives. However, the Kenya police have done an excellent job (so far) of stopping a major attack against hotels and prominent landmarks.
