NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) -- Police in Nairobi say four people have died after a car bomb blast just outside a police station in central Nairobi.

David Kimaiya, the inspector general of police, said two police officers were among those killed in the explosion late Tuesday.

An Associated Press reporter at the scene said it appeared that the blast ripped apart the back end of a sedan. The explosion happened near a police station's main gate.

Terror warnings have been a constant in Kenya in recent months, particularly after September's attack on Westgate Mall killed at least 67 people.

Most of the small-scale attacks and explosions are blamed on al-Shabab, the militant group in Somalia that has vowed revenge attacks in Kenya because Kenyan troops moved into southern Somalia in 2011.
