NAIROBI - An explosion near the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa injured several people on Saturday, a private television station and a police source said.

Kenya Television Network's Twitter feed reported that up to 10 people were injured in the grenade attack at Mtwapa, while a police source told Reuters they were aware of the explosion and put the number of injured at five.

A deputy police spokesman had no details on the cause.

Mombasa is a popular holiday destination and many Kenyans and foreigners would be planning to head there next week for their Easter breaks.
