Five people died when attackers threw a grenade inside a night club in Garissa Town as revellers celebrated the new year in the early hours of Sunday.
The attackers struck Locus Night Club soon after midnight, otherwise Kenyans across the country defied the threat of terror attacks to welcome the new year with song and dance at churches, night clubs, restaurants, parks and street parties.
Security was tight in all major towns with intensified air, land and sea patrols.
The celebratory mood continued throughout on Sunday with families gathering at public beaches and parks and at churches and pubs.
In messages to FM stations, Kenyans praised Kenya Defence Forces operating inside Somalia as national heroes.
It was the second attack on Garissa Town since Kenyan troops crossed into Somalia in pursuit of [Muslim] Al-Shabaab insurgents, who are accused of carrying out kidnappings inside Kenyan territory. (READ: Six dead in Garissa grenade attack)
In all there have been seven small-scale attacks inside Kenya since Operation Linda Nchi, now in its third month, started.
The suspected Al-Shabaab [Muslim] militants opened fire on guards manning the club before they fled on foot through Bula Sheikh residential area where they also shot an Administration Police officer who died on his way to hospital.
