NAIROBI — An explosive device set off in a Sunday school class killed one child and seriously wounded three.

Police official Moses Ombati said he suspects sympathizers with the Somali terrorist group al-Shabab were behind the attack at an Anglican church in Nairobi.

Kenya has seen a series of attacks on churches ever since Kenyan forces moved into Somalia to fight al-Shabab last year. Kenyan forces kicked the rebels out of their last stronghold, Kismayo, on Friday.

Grenades are often used in the attacks, but Mr. Ombati described the cause of Sunday’s attack only as an explosive device. One church member, Julius Macharia Maina, brought four children to the hospital. One child’s head was cut open; the others had bruises.
