More than 100 people arrested in the Kenyan port city of Mombasa during Sunday’s riots over a police raid on a mosque are expected in court.

Police said Islamist militants were carrying out training in the mosque.

At least two people are feared dead after protesters threw stones at the police, who responded with live rounds and teargas.

Kenya has been under pressure to crack down on militants blamed for a spate of attacks, including the Westgate siege.
