At least 13 people are feared to have died during two bomb attacks in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.

The blasts, which are said to have taken place near Gikomba Market, come the week hundreds of Western tourists have been evacuated from the country due to increasing terror threats.

The first explosion came from a 14-seater tour bus left the near the area, and the second came from within the market.

Reports suggest that two suspects have been arrested as a result of the attack, which took place just four miles away from the Westgate Mall, where 67 people were killed by gunmen last September.
