Fighting between ethnic Somalis and Kenyans erupts after bus bombing

Police fired tear gas to try to separate fighting between ethnic Somalis and Kenyans who attacked a Somali-dominated district of the capital. A crowd threw stones and broke into Somali homes and shops in anger and Somalis responded with stone throwing. Travellers should exercise caution and avoid the neighbourhoods where civil unrest jeopardizes personal security. Some countries advise their citizens to avoid the Nairobi suburbs of Kibera, Mathare, Kasirani and Eastleigh.
