Police have shot dead two suspected terrorists and recovered a grenade and a pistol loaded with three rounds of ammunition.
The suspects were shot dead Wednesday morning along Eastleigh’s 12th Street, next to the Kenya Bus Service (KBS) garage.
Nairobi County commander Benson Kibue has said that the suspects are believed to be the gang that hurled a grenade that killed two people and seriously injured Kamukunji MP Yusuf Hassan in December last year.
