One killed in Mombasa nightclub attack

  • One person has died after explosive devices were thrown into a nightclub in Kenya’s port city of Mombasa.

    Five people were injured in the attack at Bella Vista club.

    The attack took place after armed men were denied entry into the club as they refused to be frisked by security. They then went on to throw at least two explosive devices, believed to be grenades.

    No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

    Such attacks are often blamed on al-Qaeda linked al-Shabab rebels from neighbouring Somalia by Kenyan authorities.
