10/1/2012 Kenya (CBNNews) - Kenyan police are investigating a deadly attack on a church in the capital city of Nairobi. An explosive device was set off in a Sunday school class full of children. One child was killed and at least three seriously wounded. Jackson Mwangi was worshipping in the church when the blast occurred.
"We heard a blast from outside on the side of the nursery school and people started stampeding and scampering all over," he recalled. "The kids who were injured...the congregation started taking them to the hospital."
Police believe the Somali Muslim militant group al-Shabab is behind the attack. They have been targeting Kenyan churches ever since Kenyan forces moved into Somalia to fight al-Shabab last year.
