U6- Mombasa,Kenya saw more deadly blasts on Saturday

Three people have been killed and several wounded in two explosions in the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa, police say.

In the deadliest attack, a grenade was reportedly thrown in a bus that had just arrived from Nairobi.

The other blast happened at a bar near 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 al-Qaeda-linked group al-Shabab has carried out several attacks in Kenya since 2011, when Kenya sent troops into Somalia to battle it.

No-one has yet claimed responsibility for Saturday’s blasts.
