2 bombs explode in Kenya, blamed on Islamists; 1 killed

ISIOLO - Two bombs exploded in two Kenyan towns close to the Somali border on Sunday, in coordinated attacks that killed a policeman. The attacks were blamed on Somalia's Islamist al-Shabaab rebels, residents and a senior police commander said.
The bombs appeared to target Kenyan security forces, who have been battling al-Shabaab inside southern Somalia. Kenya, the region's biggest economy, has been plagued by a wave of low-level strikes since sending troops across the border eight weeks ago.
Leo Nyongesa, the police chief for Kenya's North Eastern province, blamed Sunday's attacks on the Islamist rebels.
