    BBC News - Kenya blames al-Shabab for Nairobi grenade attack

    Witnesses say three grenades were hurled from a vehicle passing the bus station in central Nairobi.

    Police blamed the attack on militants of the Somali Islamist group al-Shabab.

    The incident is similar to attacks last October when one person was killed and many injured after grenades were thrown into a bar and a bus station.

    That attack happened just days after the Kenyan military had crossed into Somalia to fight the Somali militants and was also blamed on al-Shabab.

    "This is a cowardly act by al-Shabab elements," police spokesman Charles Owino is quoted by the AFP news agency as saying at the bus station. "But we will not relent in the war. We will get them and we will continue with the war."

  4. Throughout history there's always been one religion being a bunch of ****-wits to everyone else. I suspect they have a duty roster or something. Next century It's probably going to be the Buddhists turn. They'll be REALLY nasty as they haven't had to do it for a few centuries.
