A grenade attack outside a night club in the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa has left one person dead and five others wounded.

Witnesses said gunmen tried to force their way into the building but were barred by the gate guards. They then shot at random and hurled the explosive devices.

Two of the guards were among those injured, a woman later died of a gunshot wound to the chest.

It is the latest attack since Kenyan troops were sent into southern Somalia to help crackdown on Islamist militants.

One of the victims described the explosion followed by smoke then fire. “I wanted to run away,” he said, “ but I couldn’t tell whether it came from a car or had been hurled by someone.”

More than 10 people have been killed recently in attacks blamed on al Shebaab. Nairobi accuses the al Qaeda linked militant group of deliberately targeting the country’s tourist trade.
