    I guess you could be right. Makes more sense than a terrorist attack.

    Scratch that. Just heard reports they have found more devices and are trying to get the bomb squad over there now. That is only a rumor I am hearing though. I did not see that on the news reports I am watching.

    You're right. It's good to wait to hear the rest of the story. CNN has reported it appeared to be coming from below - could have been a gas leak at the hotel that blew through the underground system.

    MSBNC reports that they still don't know what caused the explosion

    I once had a manhole cover fly up right in front of me from an explosion in the sewer. When it came down it smashed the front end of a car bad.

    The explosion (mine) was caused by an exposed wire shorting and igniting sewer gas, so this could be anything

    Believe we should wait before playing the terrorist card.

    Lets hope this was the case. It's bad enough to have this happen let alone if it was done maliciously.

    We should ban organized sports to less than 10 people.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    No you are right. A lot of stuff gets thrown out there.

    The only way it makes sense as a terrorist act is if Al Shabaab claims it as a strike on Ethiopians and Kenyans.
