Ten people have been wounded in a grenade attack at a restaurant south of the coastal city of Mombasa in Kenya, an official said.

One of two men on a motorcycle hurled a grenade towards customers at a crowded restaurant called Tandoori in the Diani area, Kwale county commissioner Evans Achoki said. The attackers fled before police arrived.

Mr Achoki said it was not clear who was responsible for the attack.

Kenya has been the scene of multiple terrorist attacks since the country sent its military to Somalia in 2011 to fight the al Qaida-allied Islamic rebels of al-Shabab.

In September, the group claimed responsibility for an attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi that killed 67 people.
