MOMBASA, June 24 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.
