Kenyan bomb disposal experts say they’ve safely detonated explosives left after the attack on a luxury hotel compound in Nairobi – which left 21 people dead. Nine more suspects were arrested today as the authorities vowed to bring anyone connected with the attack to justice. Five were killed at the scene, all believed to be from the Somali based jihadi group Al Shabab, which said it carried out the attack. Our international editor Lindsey¬†Hilsum¬†is in Nairobi.
