NAIROBI - Kenyan police on Monday released conditionally four people arrested over a grenade attack at the weekend at a crowded Nairobi bus station blamed on Somali Islamist militants, local television stations and a lawyer for one of the suspects said.

Police had earlier told Reuters four people had been arrested. They were released on a conditional bond pending further investigations, local TV and the lawyer said.

Mbugua Mureithi, a lawyer for one of those detained, said: "My client has been released." The client has denied being behind the attacks.

The suspects were asked to report to police on Tuesday and any other time to assist with the investigations, local TV said.
