Mombasa bar attack One person Killed several Wounded

NAIROBI — One person was killed and several others were wounded in a hand grenade attack on a bar in the Kenyan tourist hub of Mombasa on Sunday, police said.

"The attack occurred at about 10:00 pm. One person has died and we have several others injured," a police officer in Mombasa said.
The attack came a day after the US embassy in Kenya warned of the threat of an imminent attack in Mombasa, as Kenyan police arrested two Iranians on suspicion of planning bomb attacks.

"This is to alert all US citizens in Kenya, or planning to travel to Kenya in the near future, that the US embassy in Nairobi has received information of an imminent threat of a terrorist attack in Mombasa," a statement said.

"All US government travel to Mombasa is suspended until July 1." Read More
