Deadly blast rocks Mombasa after US terror warning

Latest update : 2012-06-25

At least one person was killed Sunday in a blast at a nightclub in the Kenyan port city of Mombasa, according to police officials. The attack came a day after the US embassy in Kenya issued a terror warning for the coastal town.

REUTERS - Kenyan police said at least one person was killed after an explosion hit a night club in the port city of Mombasa on Sunday, a day after the U.S. embassy in Kenya warned of an imminent attack on the city.

"I am seeing one body. We are trying to seal off the area as we wait for officers to establish what kind of an explosion it was," said Ambrose Munyasia, the region’s top criminal investigation officer who was at the scene, told Reuters.

Local media said three people had been killed in the blast.

Mombasa, a popular holiday destination for Kenyans and foreigners, has been hit by a series of explosions since Kenya sent troops into Somalia in October to crush Islamist militants.
