MOMBASA - Kenya needs to improve security to ensure that voters are not deterred by recent grenade and gun attacks and threats by a coastal separatist movement to disrupt the election due next March, the head of the electoral commission said on Friday.

Kenya has been hit by several explosions since it sent troops into Somalia to crush al Shabaab militants in October.

A separatist group has threatened to boycott and disrupt voting if the government does not give in to their demand for secession for Kenya's Indian Ocean coastal strip, centered on the tourist area and port city of Mombasa.
