Two people were tonight injured in a grenade attack on a food kiosk in bulla adaan, Garissa town.

Confirming the incident, Garissa County Commissioner Mr. Harun Khator told reporters that the two were rushed to Garissa County referral hospital.

The attack is the second of its kind in the town in as many days. On Monday, a man was injured after two people hurled a grenade at a group of people walking by the roadside in bula punda near Garissa power station.

The country witnessed deadly attacks by Al-Shabaab over the past few days. 36 quarry workers were killed in cold blood on Tuesday this week.

28 others were killed in a similar attack on a Nairobi bound bus from Mandera on November 22.

Interior CS Joseph Ole Lenku was shown the door while Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo threw in the towel and resigned yesterday following the series of attacks that rocked the Country.
