Coast unit arrest fifth woman suspect on Mombasa police attack

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenyan police on Monday arrested another woman over alleged links to the attack by three women at a police station in the port city of Mombasa on Sept. 11.

Detectives from anti-terrorism police and paramilitary police raided the house of the suspect in the port city of Mombasa in the evening.

Three female attackers were killed by police when they stormed the Mombasa Central Police Station last Sunday. One woman threw a petrol bomb and another stabbed two officers with a knife in the attack.

Police said the woman was in contact with the female attackers.

"We are holding another suspect we believe was also involved in the attack," Mombasa urban police boss Lucas Ogara told Xinhua.

Her arrest brings the number of those arrested in connection with the attack to five.

"All of them are in custody, including three women of Somali origin, accused of allegedly harbouring terrorists.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Somalia-based Islamist group Al-Shabaab has carried out several bloody attacks in Kenya in recent years, including the April 2015 attack at Garissa University, which killed more than 140 people.

More arrests made over Kenyan police station attack 

MOMBASA (Xinhua) -- Kenya’s anti-terrorism police on Wednesday arrested three female terror suspects behind the police station attack in Mombasa on Sept. 11.

The police suspected the three to be accomplices of the three women who were shot dead during a foiled attack at the central police station in Mombasa.

They were classmates of one of the attackers, police said.

Seven people have already been arrested in connection with the attack.
