ISIOLO, Kenya - Two separate suspected grenade attacks at a hotel and a refugee camp in northeastern Kenya wounded at least five people on Saturday, police said, days after a similar strike in the region.

Police said four people at a primary school in the Ifo refugee camp in Garissa, and another one person at a hotel in Wajir were wounded in the attacks.

"Four people have been injured in the Ifo attack. They are all casual laborers working at a primary school doing construction," said Leo Nyongesa, North Eastern police commander, told Reuters.

Nyongesa said confirmed that a second blast at a hotel in Wajir frequented by government workers had wounded one person.
