Local police chief Robert Mureithi said two gunmen stormed a church near the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa on Sunday and opened fire on worshipers, killing two people and wounding others.
A witness also said the gunmen shouted out in a foreign language before shooting indiscriminately at the congregation. Blood-spattered Bibles and overturned plastic chairs lay strewn across the church’s floor after the attack.
Kenya’s National Disaster Operation Center said there had been “mass casualties” in the attack, on the evangelical New Testament Church.
No group has claimed responsibility yet for the attack.
The Somali Islamist militant group Al Shabaab and their Kenyan sympathizers have been blamed for other gun and grenade attacks, which have targeted churches before, in Mombasa and the capital, Nairobi.
