A child has been killed and three others seriously hurt in a grenade attack on a church's Sunday school in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

A police spokesman has blamed sympathisers of Somalia's al-Shabab Islamist militant group, which is angry over Kenya's role in the UN-backed intervention force.

A mob later rounded on Somalis living near the church with sticks and stones in a suspected revenge attack.

Police chief Moses Nyakwama says 13 people have been injured in the revenge attack.
