MOMBASA - A senior leader of a separatist group campaigning for the secession of Kenya's coastal strip was charged in court on Monday with inciting members of his group to disobey the law by declaring the coast is not a part of the east African country.

Mohamed Mraja, the spokesman for the Mombasa Republican Council (MRC), denied the charges which came days after four people were killed when a gang of youths brandishing machetes tried to attack a Kenyan cabinet minister at a public meeting.

Police linked the attack to the MRC and said they had also arrested four others believed to be officials of the group. The MRC denied any involvement.
