NAIROBI - At least ten people were killed on Friday in two explosions that left 70 others wounded in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, the country's National Disaster Operations Center (NDOC) said.



There was no immediate claim of responsibility. In the past such attacks have been widely blamed on the Somali Islamist militant group al Shabaab, which wants Kenyan troops out of Somalia and in September killed 67 people in an attack on a Nairobi shopping mall.

The blasts came shortly after Kenya rebuked Britain, the United States, France and Australia for issuing travel warnings about the country and hundreds of tourists began leaving resorts along the Indian Ocean coast.
