One dead after protesters throw grenade at police in Kenya, official says

NAIROBI, Kenya (CNN) - Protesters threw a grenade at a vehicle carrying anti-riot police in Mombasa Tuesday, killing one officer and wounding 13 others, a police official said.

The violence came on the second day of protests after a radical Muslim cleric was killed in the same city Monday by assailants his wife claims were police.

Provincial police chief Aggrey Adoli told CNN the police were on their way to help beef up security because of the ongoing riots. An unknown perpetrator hurled a grenade at the police truck, causing the fatality and injuries. The wounded are being treated at two hospitals in Mombasa, Adoli added.
