MOMBASA, Kenya - A Kenyan court on Friday charged a man suspected of links to last month's attack on a Nairobi shopping mall with plotting to commit terrorist acts in the port city of Mombasa.

Anti-terrorism police arrested Swaleh Abdallah Said on Thursday and he led them to a house in Mombasa where they found explosives, a grenade, two mobile phones and passports, prosecutors told the magistrate's court.

"We are requesting four days to conclude investigations because we are linking the accused to the recent acts of terrorism at Westgate in Nairobi," prosecutor Simon Waithaka told the court.

Said, a Kenyan national, was in possession of unauthorised explosives, Waithaka added.

The suspect denied all the charges.
