Kenya gov't: Police intercept bomb-laden vehicle
« on: March 18, 2014, 05:14:31 AM »
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Kenyan authorities say police have intercepted a car with improvised explosive devices, foiling a planned terrorist attack in the coastal city of Mombasa.

The Kenya National Disaster Operations Centre said in a tweet late Monday night that officers from the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit arrested two men that were in the car in the Changamwe area in Mombasa.

Kenya has suffered a wave of attacks since October 2011 when the government sent its troops into Somalia to fight an al-Qaida-linked insurgent group known as al-Shabab. Al-Shabab vowed to avenge Kenya's military incursion into Somalia and claimed responsibility for the Sept. 21 terror attack on an upscale mall in Nairobi in which at least 67 people were killed by gunmen.
