Police have sealed off a restaurant in down town Nairobi following a huge blast.
It was not immediately clear what caused the blast which went off shortly after 7 pm outside Smothers Fast Food Restaurant on Tom Mboya Street. However, initial police reports said the blast was caused by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).
One person suffered minor injuries on the leg after he was pierced by a shrapnel from the IED during the Saturday incident.
So loud was the blast that it was heard as far as Koinange Street, causing panic and disrupting the vibrant Nairobi night life.
