On 14 December 2013, a hand grenade was thrown onto a minibus in Eastleigh, a Somali-dominated suburb in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. The explosion killed at least 4 people and wounded 36 others. It was the fourth such attack to occur during the 50th anniversary week of Kenya's independence. Thirteen people died since 10 December 2013, with no group claiming responsibility for the assaults. A string of similar attacks have occurred in various areas across Kenya since the Kenyan military deployed troops in southern Somalia against the Al-Shabaab militant group.[1]
