Three women have been shot dead after they attacked a police station at the Kenyan coast.
Mombasa police boss Parterson Maelo said two policemen were wounded in the stabbing attack.
The women, who were dressed in burkhas, were then shot by police.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Kenya faces a constant danger of being attacked by supporters of the Somali militant group al-Shabab, which has vowed retribution for Kenyan troop presence in Somalia.
Al-Shabab is al Qaida's affiliate in the region. It has recruited hundreds of Kenyans and used them in numerous attacks on the country since 2011 when the Kenyan government deployed troops to Somalia to fight the militants.
