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.

    Catherine Soi reports from Mombasa on how the growing unrest is affecting the country's tourism.
