Members of Kenya's General Paramilitary Service Unit patrol on the streets of Nairobi on October 24, 2011 following two grenade attacks on a local pub and a bus stop that together, killed one and wounded some 32 people. Police blame the grenade attacks on the Somali rebels, Al Shabaab. "We are linking the grenade attack to the threats that have been issued by Shabaab, and that is why I am appealing to city residents to be vigilant and cooperate with our officers," said Nairobi police chief Antony Kibuchi. The US embassy in Nairobi had warned Saturday of an "imminent threat" of attacks possibly targeting foreigners, one week after Kenyan forces crossed into Somalia to hunt down Al Qaeda-linked Shabaab fighters.
