Two British tourists have escaped unharmed after a hand grenade hurled at their tour van in Mombasa, Kenya, failed to explode. Likoni police chief Robert Mureithi said: “A suspect tried to throw something which resembled a grenade into a motor vehicle. Fortunately, it hit the passenger’s door and landed by the side. The two passengers who were in the tour van were unhurt.” This comes as the country marked 50 years of independence from British rule, however, police say the incidents are not related. Bomb experts have defused the device. Report by Sarah Kerr.
