One child was killed and 6 others badly injured when a grenade exploded at a Catholic church during Sunday-school classes.

Residents suspect that the explosion at St. Polycarp’s church in Nairobi was the work of Al Shabaab, an Islamic terrorist group based in Somalia. After the explosion, 3 Somali residents who had been taking photos of the church were taken into police custody.
