Blaze Damages Nairobi’s International Airport

NAIROBI, Kenya — A huge fire broke out Wednesday and raged for four hours at Nairobi’s international airport on the anniversary of the attacks on the United States Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, officials and witnesses said, bringing East Africa’s busiest airport to a standstill and turning parts of it into charred ruins.

By midafternoon, Michael Kamau, a senior government transportation official, told reporters that the airport, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, had been partly reopened for domestic and cargo flights, but that international passenger traffic was still suspended.

It is really sad to see such an incident which can affect the whole region, because of the significant roll this big Nairobi international air port have in business or any social affair.
It was definitely a work of alshabab terror cell, who are angry for being kicked out from Somalia where they were terrorizing their own people, and now could be living among the Kenyans.
Hope the Kenyan govt go to the bottom of it to find and punish the culprits who started this fire.
I Wish them a speedy recovery for a business as usual!

Have to be Somalis Muslims working for their slave masters in Saudi.
The Islamic God wants blood just like the God of the Aztecs and Mayans.
Get Alamudi out! Let’s buy his businesses so we can have Peace. Those that let him in, shame on you. You are not Ethiopians.
