Twin explosions rock Kenyan city

Three people have reportedly been killed in two explosions in the Kenyan port city of Mombasa.

According to one report, a grenade was thrown in a bus in the Mwembe Tayari area of the tourist resort, leaving three dead and several others wounded.

The other explosion was heard at a hotel in the Nyali beach area. There are no reports of casualties there.

Kenya has been hit by a spate of attacks blamed by the government on Somali Islamist militants.

The country has been on alert since last September’s assault by al-Shabab gunmen on the Westgate shopping mall in the capital Nairobi that killed 67 people.

Al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda-affiliated group, vowed revenge attacks after Kenya sent troops into Somalia in 2011 to fights its militants.
