Police detonate bomb found near Eastleigh

An officer from Bomb Disposal Unit checks an Improvised Explosive Device that was found buried by the road side at Mlango Kubwa, Nairobi on April 01, 2014

Bomb disposal experts have detonated a bomb that had been buried in the ground outside a residential area at Mlango Kubwa near Nairobi’s Eastleigh estate.
Police had earlier cleared traffic and pedestrians along Juja road over suspicion there were explosive materials near the place.
The police said there were three men at the site who fled when they saw security officers on patrol. The officers then checked and found wires protruding from the ground.
A loud bang could be heard as the bomb went off. Experts were still checking whether there are more explosives.
The section of Juja Road remained closed to traffic and the public, police said, even as curious onlookers milled around the scene.
 The bomb was found near Eastleigh estate where six people were killed.
Police launched a security operation and arrested over 600 people
