NAIROBI: Two Kenyan policeman died overnight of injuries from a grenade attack during riots in the port city of Mombasa, taking the toll of officers killed by the blast to three, officials said Wednesday.
"We have lost two more officers, they succumbed to injuries in the night," said regional police chief Aggrey Adoli, adding that the situation in Mombasa, which has seen two days of deadly protest, was so far calm.
Over a dozen other officers were wounded in the grenade attack, which came as officers tried to contain protests by hundreds of angry youths rioting in support of Aboud Rogo Mohammed.
"We do not have any problems this morning... Even public transport is back to normal business, and shops have been opened," Adoli said.
"We have made adequate deployment for street patrols to maintain peace," he added.
