Police in Kenya’s coastal town of Mombasa Sunday shot dead two women and one man dressed in a buibui (robe) in a failed attack that brought back memories of al shabaab terror.
The women had come to ostensibly report loss of their mobile phones in a public service vehicle.
As one of the police was interrogating them, one woman tried to enter one of the doors leading to inner offices but a policeman stopped her.
She immediately threw a knife at him while her accomplice hurled a grenade at another reporting office on duty.
The station court fire leaving two officers injured and the ensuing police action resulted in the death of two women attackers and one man
