Three people have been killed in an explosion in the Kenyan capital Nairobi. Police said at least eight others were wounded.

The explosion was near a mosque in the Somali district of Eastleigh at around 7.30pm on Friday.

The BBC reports another bomb exploded in the same area two days before, killing one person.

Kenya accuses the al-Shabab group which is linked to al-Qaeda, of trying to destabilise the country.
