Kenya police arrest 2 with bomb-making materials

Kenya's police spokesman says officers acting on a tip have arrested two men with bomb-making materials in the country's capital.
Eric Kiraithe says the suspects _ one of them a pastor _ were arrested Saturday with a substance believed to be ammonium nitrate, a detonator and a safety fuse. Ammonium nitrate fertilizer can be used as an ingredient in bombs.
Kiraithe said in a statement released late Saturday that the pair are now under investigation to establish their motive and identify any other accomplices.
Kenya has beefed up its security after last week's twin blasts in Uganda that killed 76 people who were watching the World Cup final on television.
