Two explosions killed at least 10 people in the Kenyan capital Nairobi as British holidaymakers were being flown home early from the East African country's other main town Mombasa.
The death-toll figure was given by the Kenyan National Disaster Operations Centre (NDOC) which added that around 70 people had been injured and that one suspect had been arrested.
One of the blasts was reported to be on a 14-seat matatu tour bus. Both explosions were in the Gikombna Market area of the city at around 1pm yesterday.
