At least three people were killed in two explosions in Kenya's port city of Mombasa on Saturday, witnesses and local media said.

One of the blasts occurred at a busy bus transport terminal, known as Mwembe Tayari, where a device inside a minibus exploded killing three people, according to witnesses and media.

A second blast was heard at the Reef Hotel, which lies along the Indian Ocean coastline but no casualties were reported in that explosion.

Mombasa police were not immediately available to comment.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but Kenya has been hit in the recent past by gun and grenade attacks in Mombasa and in the capital Nairobi, which the government has blamed on Somali group al Shabaab.
