Bomb attacks: Kenya deputy president blames judges

Faced with rising public anger over a wave terror attacks, Kenya's deputy president appears to be blaming the attacks on judges who have given bail to terror suspects.
   Deputy President William Ruto said Monday that terror suspects Jamal Mohammed Awadh and Sulieman Mohammed Sayyed were free on bail and died Saturday while carrying out attacks on the Kenyan coast.
   However, the families of the two men deny the two were involved or had been arrested earlier.
   Kenya has suffered a string of terror attacks since it sent troops to Somalia in 2011. The latest came on Saturday -- two blasts on Kenya's coast that killed four -- and Sunday, when bombs went off on two public buses, killing three.
   Kenya has arrested thousands of suspects in recent weeks.
