Riots mombasa kenya 20120828

Kenyan paramilitary police walk past burning tyres in Kenya's port city of Mombasa during a second day of clashes after the killing of an extremist cleric linked to Al-Qaeda-allied Shabaab militants on August 28, 2012. Hundreds of angry youths have reportedly thrown stones, damaged cars after amassing in support of slain preacher Aboud Rogo Mohammed near the centre of Mombasa. The cleric, who was shot dead on August 27, 2012 by "unknown people," according to the police, was on US and UN sanctions lists for allegedly supporting the Shebab, including through recruitment and fundraising. He was driving with his wife and children when gunmen opened fire on his vehicle, leaving it riddled with bullets.
