NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A grenade thrown into a church during Sunday service in Kenya's capital has wounded 10 people, an official says.

Deputy police spokesman Charles Owino said that the grenade exploded at Gods House of Miracle Church in Nairobi.

The blast is the latest in a string of small arms, bomb and grenade attacks that have killed scores of people since Kenya sent troops across the border into neighboring Somalia in October. The incursion followed a string of attacks by Somali gunmen on Kenyan soil. Somalia's al-Qaida-linked insurgency vowed revenge and incited sympathizers to carry out attacks in Kenya.

The church blast Sunday follows a U.S. embassy warning that a terror attack on prominent government buildings and hotels in Nairobi could be imminent.

The embassy said Monday that the timing of the attack is not known but they believe it to be at a final planning stage.

In March, a grenade attack at one of the main bus stations in Kenya's capital killed at least four people and wounded 40 others.

Religion and Politics in Bahrain: How About That Police Reform?
Sunday, January 8, 2012 How About That Police Reform? Now, I am not an expert in reforming police and security forces in the aftermath of damning reports accusing said services of excessive force and torture, but my inclination is that one thing you'd probably want to include in that reform agenda is, to begin with, a new policy against the use of excessive force and torture. So, either Bahrain is paying its foreign police reform advisers a lot of money for nothing (though perhaps like NFL coordin...
