An explosion has rocked a mainly Somali neighbourhood in Kenya's capital Nairobi, police say.

Nairobi police chief Moses Nyakwama told AFP news agency that at least five people were reportedly injured in the blast in the Eastleigh neighbourhood.
Last month, a grenade blast in Eastleigh left seven people dead.
Kenya accuses neighbouring Somalia's al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab group of trying to destabilise the country.
Reuters news agency reports that its correspondent at the explosion site has seen pools of blood on the ground, as the wounded were swiftly moved away.
Ambulance sirens have wailed through Nairobi's congested streets, it reports.
Mr Nyakwama said details about the latest explosion were still sketchy, AFP reports.
"We do not know exactly what happened... Police are currently heading to the scene to get more details," he is quoted as saying.
