Tourism in Kenya's Mombasa hit by unrest

Frequent grenade attacks and police clashes have cast a hefty toll on coastal city's tourism industry since 2007.

    A total of 129 suspects, arrested following clashes between police and Muslim youth in a mosque on Kenya's coast, will appear in court on Friday.

    Years of unrest has cast a hefty toll on Kenya's tourism industry since 2007, as frequent grenades and clashes scared away tourists, leaving beaches almost deserted even during the high season.
