Ten wounded in double Kenya attacks

NAIROBI: At least 10 people were wounded in two separate attacks in Kenya, police said Sunday, including a blast at a church in Mombasa and a grenade hurled in a crowd in Nairobi.
In the port city of Mombasa, attackers on a motorbike threw a homemade bomb into a church service, wounding seven, while in Nairobi, a grenade was thrown in the largely ethnic Somali district of Eastleigh, wounding three, police said.
The attacks are the latest in a string of grenade blasts or shootings to have hit Kenya, although it was not immediately clear if the two attacks were connected. In Mombasa, coastal police chief Aggrey Adoli said that police were searching for the attackers. “The attack occurred at a crusade (church service),” Adoli said. “Those injured have been taken to hospital.” The blast was believed to be caused by an improvised petrol bomb.
