10 injured in Kenya tourist resort attack
(01-02 14:15)

Ten people were wounded when attackers hurled a grenade into a restaurant in a popular coastal tourist resort town in Kenya, police said.
“We had an explosion at the bar and about 10 people were injured,'' said Jack Ekakuro, the local police chief in the Indian Ocean town of Diani, south of Mombasa.
Attackers targeted the Tandoori bar in Diani in the early hours today, when it was still crowded with people celebrating over the New Year holiday.
“We're trying to establish the kind of explosive used,'' Ekakuro added, but a police officer at the scene, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the blast “had all the characteristics'' of a grenade.
“The attackers were on a motorcycle and fled after hurling the grenade,'' a police source said.—AFP
