Kenya: Al-Shabaab did not order grenade attacks

Twin grenade attacks in Nairobi earlier this week were not the work of the Somali militant group Al-Shabaab, a Kenyan government spokesman said Wednesday.

"It was two young guys inspired by Al-Shabaab," said Alfred Mutua, "but not directed by Al-Shabaab leadership."

One suspect has been arrested, Mutua said, and authorities hope to arrest the second soon.

    Wtg, Kenya!
    It is good of the Kenyan government to recognize that it's the work of someone else and not go with the knee-jerk reaction of blaming the terrorist flavor of the day.
