Two blasts struck the Somali district of the Kenyan capital on Tuesday, leaving at least one person wounded, the Red Cross said on its Twitter feed.

"One casualty has been evacuated," the Red Cross said.

The blasts came as results were trickling in from Kenya's presidential polls, although the predominantly Somali district of Eastleigh has in recent months been the target of several attacks attributed to sympathisers of Somalia's Shebab insurgents.
