Kenya government: 3 people killed, 7 wounded in 2 blasts along Kenyan coast

A Kenyan government agency says three people have been killed in two blasts along the Kenyan coast.

The National Disaster Operation Center reported explosions on Saturday near a bus stop in Mwembe Tayari in the coastal city of Mombasa, and the other near a beachside tourist resort in Nyali.

The agency says three people were killed in the blast in Mwembe Tayari and seven others wounded. No fatalities were immediately reported in the blast at the Reef hotel in Nyali.

Kenya has been hit by a wave of gun and explosive attacks since it sent its troops to Somalia to fight al-Shabab militants in 2011. The Al-Qaida-linked militants have vowed to carry out terrorist attacks on Kenyan soil to avenge the presence of Kenyan troops in Somalia.
