Muslim violence in Kenya has targeted Christian churches.

Jonathan Racho of International Christian Concern (ICC) updates OneNewsNow on the violence "in a city called Mombasa about attacks against five churches by Muslim rioters."

He reports that the riot was sparked "after unknown gunmen killed a Muslim radical cleric. After he was killed, the Muslims in the city blamed police for the killing of the radical Muslim, and then they started to attack churches."

The cleric is Sheikh Rogo, who has been linked with the Somali-based radical Islamic group Al-Shabaab, which encouraged the mob by telling them they must take matters into their own hands and stand against non-believers.

Amid the rioting, two people were killed, including one policeman.
