May 27, 2012

Grenade attacks at a refugee camp and a hotel in two northeastern Kenyan towns wounded five people yesterday, the police said.

In one attack, four construction workers at the Ifo refugee camp run by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees in Garissa, about 327 kilometers (203 miles) from the capital Nairobi, were injured, Leo Nyongesa, head of police in the region, said. One person at a hotel in the town of Wajir, was wounded, he said.

Earlier this month, one woman was shot dead during a grenade attack that also injured five people at a nightclub in the port city of Mombasa on May 15.
