Kenya grenade attack wounds 10 near Mombasa
Kwale County Commissioner Evans Achoki said two men riding on a motorcycle approached a crowded eatery called Tandoori in the Diani area. One of them hurled a grenade toward customers before the motorcycle sped away.
Achoki said it was not clear who was responsible.
Police were investigating and that no details had been given about the type of grenade used in the attack, he said.
At least one of the victims was seriously wounded and had undergone surgery at a nearby hospital, Achoki said.
Kenya has been the scene of multiple terrorist attacks since the country sent its military to Somalia in 2011 to fight the al-Qaida-allied Islamic rebels of al-Shabab. In September, the group claimed responsibility for an attack on the Westgate Mall in the capital, Nairobi. At least 67 people were killed in that attack.2014-01-02 16:12:06 GMT
