NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya said that it would restart domestic flights and international cargo flights later in the day after the country's main airport was shut following a fire earlier on Wednesday.

"We expect cargo and domestic services to resume from this airport this afternoon. They will operate from the cargo terminal," said Manoah Esipisu, spokesman for the presidency.
