Grenades kill 4 in Kenya's capital
NAIROBI, Kenya - A grenade attack at one of the main bus stations in Kenya's capital killed at least four people and wounded 40 others Saturday, officials said, in the latest bloodshed blamed on sympathizers of Somalia's al-Qaeda-linked insurgency.
Witnesses reported that people in a moving car hurled three grenades at the outdoor terminal, police spokesman Charles Owino said. Government minister Esther Murugi said six needed emergency surgery. Earlier, a Red Cross official said 12 people were in critical condition.
The blasts are the latest in a string of attacks that has killed scores of people since Kenya sent troops across the border into Somalia in October. The incursion followed a string of attacks by Somalian gunmen on Kenyan soil. Somalia's al-Qaeda-linked insurgency vowed revenge and incited sympathizers to carry out attacks in Kenya. - AP
Remains found in Mexican cave
MEXICO CITY - Authorities have found the remains of 167 people in a southern Mexican cave, and forensic experts say they believe the remains are at least 50 years old, according to a statement from Chiapas state prosecutors.
The statement released Saturday said the remains were found Friday on a ranch in an area frequently used by Central American migrants traveling north. The statement said there were no visible signs of violence on the remains, which "break easily."
The remains were discovered stacked atop each other in the cave, said a prosecutor's office employee. The remains have been moved to the state capital of Tuxtla Gutierrez for examination, the employee said. - AP
About 300 nude bicyclists rode Saturday through the Peruvian capital of Lima to call attention to safety conditions and demand measures protecting cyclists. Event organizer Octavio Zegarra said the protesters meant to show that "this is our body. With this we go out in the streets. We don't have a car to protect us."
