Red Cross: Nairobi bus station blast toll rises to 5

NAIROBI - A grenade attack at a bus station in central Nairobi killed five people and wounded 69, the Kenya Red Cross said on Sunday.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility. The attack was similar to two strikes at a nearby bus station and a bar that killed one person and wounded more than 20 in October, soon after Kenya sent troops into Somalia to fight Islamist rebels.
Police blamed al Shabaab, the Somali militant group allied to al-Qaida that has pledged to carry out more reprisal attacks in Kenya until the east African country pulls its soldiers out of Somalia.
