ICC Note: The total killed in a brutal attack on a Kenyan church near Mombasa, Kenya has now risen to 6. 2 more victims died from wounds received when gunmen opened fire in the Joy Jesus church in Likoni, near the popular port city of Mombasa.
03/24/2014 Kenya (BBC) – Two more people have died after Sunday’s attack on a church near the Kenyan port of Mombasa, officials say, meaning six people have now died.
Witnesses say more people are seriously wounded after at least two gunmen burst into the church in Likoni and started shooting indiscriminately.
The attackers managed to escape on foot before police arrived.
No group has said it carried out the raid, but officials have blamed Somali Islamist militants for similar attacks.
The al-Qaeda group al-Shabab has carried out several attacks in Kenya since 2011, when Kenya sent troops into Somalia to battle it.
Last year, at least 67 people were killed after al-Shabab militants took control of the Westgate shopping mall in the capital Nairobi for four days.
“Two more victims succumbed last [Sunday] night, we still have 15 others admitted in hospital,” local ministry of health chief Khadija Shikely said.
