Explosion at Gikomba market, Nairobi


A few hours ago there was a blast in a busy market area of Nairobi. So far 10 deaths reported and many casualties. The incident has attracted large crowds to the scene. This was after this mornings warnings from the FCO about an imminent attack in Mombasa and evacuation of tourists from the coastal holiday destination. We have some family holidaying near there at the moment and hope that they are safe. We are safe and planning a weekend camping outside of Nairobi.

US Embassy staff were sent home this morning and there are rumours that the market blast might be a decoy for something bigger. Please pray for calm and safety for the people of Kenya. Image
