Kenya: 3 Dead As Twin Explosions Rock Mombasa

Mombasa — Three people died and at least 15 others were wounded when a grenade exploded at a bus stop in Mwembe Tayari, Mombasa on Saturday evening.

A second explosion in the coastal resort town left no injuries after a grenade detonated on a path leading to the beach near the Reef Hotel in Nyali.

Police say the city centre attack was orchestrated by unknown people who hurled a grenade at a crowd gathered at the bus stop.
