Three more people have been killed by unknown gunmen on the Kenyan coast, police said today.

So far a total of 94 people have died in less than a month in attacks claimed by al Qaida-linked militants.

Mombasa police chief Robert Kitur said today that three gunmen opened fire indiscriminately in the city's Soweto slum last night.

The attack came a day after gunmen attacked a bus and killed seven people near the town of Witu, Lamu County. Al Qaida-linked al-Shabab militants from Somalia claimed responsibility for that attack.

Al-Shabab has vowed to carry out attacks in Kenya to avenge the deployment of Kenyan troops to Somalia to fight the militants.
