Kenyan police have warned the public not to panic after bomb experts on Thursday found an explosive in the Dusit office park which terrorists stormed on Tuesday in an attack that left 21 people dead, the Daily Nation reported.
Through their Twitter handle, the National Police Service (NPS) urged the public not to be alarmed if they heard a blast when their officers detonated the device.
“We wish to inform the general public that bomb experts from the @DCI_Kenya [Directorate of Criminal Investigations] are still combing the scene of the Dusit incident for any remaining explosives or booby traps that could have been left by the slain attackers,” said NPS.
So far one explosive has been found and taken for detonation in a safe area. This is to caution members of the public not to panic should they hear a blast since it will be a safe blast. 2/2
