MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Two explosions rocked the Somali capital Mogadishu on Wednesday outside a hotel where the newly elected president and Kenya's foreign minister were holding a news conference, a Reuters witness said.

Two bodies could be seen outside the hotel, one of whom appeared to be a suicide bomber. President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud and the Kenyan minister were unharmed.
