Kenyan police have arrested more than 650 suspects a day after six people were killed in bomb attacks in the capital Nairobi, the interior minister said.
“This act of cowardice perpetrated against innocent and peace-loving Kenyans who were going about their normal activities is barbaric,” Joseph Ole Lenku said in a statement on Tuesday.
“So far 657 suspects have been apprehended,” he added.
Kenyan police regularly arrest scores of people after similar attacks in sweeping security operations, but later release most after questioning.
