Three Muslim women in Kenya entered a police station, one woman took a bomb from underneath her veil and threw it at authorities, while another took out a knife and stabbed an officer. The officers unleashed hell and killed all three of them. Here is the report:
Three women dressed in burqas have been shot dead by police after launching a stabbing attack at a police station on the Kenyan coast.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, in which two Mombasa policemen were wounded.
But Kenya is one of the leading countries in a coalition fighting against the Al-Shabaab Islamist group in neighbouring Somalia and faces a constant threat of retaliatory attacks.
Speaking at the scene, Mombasa County Police Commander Patterson Maelo told reporters the women had walked into the station on the pretence of reporting a stolen mobile phone.
“While being questioned by officers, one drew a knife and the other threw a petrol bomb at the officers. The station caught fire,” he said.
“Police shot the three and killed them. Two officers are in hospital with wounds. Presumably it is a terror attack.”
Salma Mohamed, a witness who was at the station to see a relative in custody, said one attacker had jumped onto a counter and stabbed an officer in the thigh before being shot.
