Three women terrorists killed
THREE women were killed while staging a knife and firebomb attack on the main police station in the Kenyan city of Mombasa in what officers said was “an apparent terror attack”.
Mombasa County police chief Peterson Maelo said the three women had entered the city’s busiest police station in mid-morning on September 11, saying they wanted to report a stolen phone.
“In the process one hurled a petrol bomb at the report office as the others confronted two officers and stabbed them,” Mr Maelo said.
“All the three attackers have been killed and the two police officers were taken to hospital,” he said, terming it “an apparent terror attack”.
A senior police officer said that the three were in Muslim dress.
A witness said, “The women were shouting, saying, ‘God is great, Allahu Akbar’ ... then one of them threw something at the cops and that’s when I ran away.” –
