NAIROBI (Reuters) - Two loud blasts in quick succession injured a number of people near a mosque in the Somali-dominated Eastleigh area of the Kenyan capital Nairobi on Wednesday, local media said.

The area has been the scene of numerous attacks suspected to be the work of Somali Islamist groups who object to Kenya's armed incursion into neighboring Somalia.
