Rioters attack ethnic Somalis after bomb attack in Kenyan capital

Reuters reports — Police fired tear gas to disperse Kenyans who threw stones and broke into the homes and shops of ethnic Somalis in Nairobi's Somali-dominated Eastleigh neighborhood on Monday to protest against a bomb attack in the district on Sunday.

Many Kenyans blamed Somalis for the blast. Police said on Monday that at least nine people were killed on Sunday when a bomb tore through a minibus in the Nairobi district often referred to as "Little Mogadishu".

In Eastleigh, mobs marauded through the streets chanting "Somalis must go!" Read the full story.
