0

NAIROBI: Ten people were killed and over 70 wounded Friday in two bomb attacks at a busy market in Nairobi, the latest in a wave of unrest blamed on Kenya’s Islamist militants. The twin bombings came as hundreds of British tourists were being evacuated from beach resorts near the port city of Mombasa after Britain’s Foreign Office and other nations issued new travel warnings. The National Disaster Operation Center said the first blast in the capital occurred next to a 14-seater matatu, or public minibus, and the second was inside a shop in Gikomba Market close to Nairobi’s central business district. A spokesman at the Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi’s main hospital, said eight bodies were brought in and “more than 70” people admitted for treatment, many of them in a serious condition.
