MOMBASA, Kenya (AP) — An official says a grenade attack has killed one person and wounded many others on the Kenyan coast.
Police official Aggrey Adoli said the grenade was thrown into a bar outside the coastal city of Mombasa late Sunday. He said one person was killed and many others wounded. Local media said 12 were wounded.
Kenya has seen several small-scale grenade attacks since the country sent troops to Somalia in October.
The latest attack came only hours after Kenyan officials protested a U.S. Embassy travel advisory released Friday that warned of an imminent attack in Mombasa. The officials said the advisory amounted to "economic sabotage" in a city that relies on tourism.
The attack came during a big European soccer match between England and Italy late Sunday.
