Two explosions have struck the Kenyan capital Nairobi on Friday, killing four people, authorities said. The blasts came just hours after Britain's Foreign Office urged tourists to leave the country following what it said was a "high threat from terrorism, including kidnapping." On Twitter, Kenya's National Disaster Operation Center said Friday one blast targeted a mini-van that Kenyans use for public transportation. It says that a second blast went off in a market. The State Department also issued a travel alert for Kenya this week over possible terrorist attacks.
