Nairobi, June 14 (ANI): Five people died and more than 70 others were on Sunday hurt after two explosions caused a stampede at a 'No' rally in Nairobi's Uhuru Park.

The explosions took place as a Nairobi preacher was conducting prayers after the main rally, which was otherwise peaceful, THe Daily Nation of Kenya reported.

The well-attended rally-cum religious crusade was addressed by religious leaders and politicians who are leading the campaign to have the draft constitution rejected.

The rally had ended and people had left, but one of the pastors had continued with prayers well beyond the 6pm permitted in law. It was not clear what caused the explosions that occurred 30 minutes apart as pastor James Ng'ang'a was conducting prayers after the end of the rally. (ANI)
