Twin Explosions in Kenya Kill 3

At least three people have been killed after a pair of explosions rocked the Kenyan port city of Mombasa on Saturday.

Investigators say an explosive device detonated near a bus stop, leaving three people dead and several others wounded.

The second blast occurred near a beachside hotel. There were no reports of casualties.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility, but the country has been hit by a series of attacks since 2011, when Kenya sent troops to Somalia to help the country fight al-Shabab militants.

In April, a bomb exploded outside a Nairobi police station, killing four people.
