Residents walk past burning tyres set alight by protestors in the Majengo area of the coastal city of Mombasa in Kenya on August 29, 2012. Kenyan police units are on a search for protesters and any possible weaponry used during recent riots in Mombasa which left 3 Kenyan police officers dead and over a dozen injured after a grenade attack on a police vehicle. A controversial muslim cleric known as Rogo, who was on US and UN sanctions lists for allegedly supporting Somalia’s Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab militants was killed in Mombasa when unidentified gunmen opened fire on his vehicle sparking violent riots. Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga today called for the nation to come together to stop religious violence, after two days of deadly rioting sparked by the killing of a radical cleric.
