One News Now reported, via ROP:

According to International Christian Concern (ICC), more Christians have been attacked in Kenya.

Jonathan Racho received first word of the deadly incident against more than 150 Christians.

“Suspected Islamists threw a grenade and killed two Christians and wounded more than 30 in the Kenyan city of Mtwapa,” he reports. “At the time, the Christians were holding an outdoor worship service.”

A witness told ICC three people sitting in a parked car near the site threw the grenade and drove away.

“And at the time when Christians were holding the service, Muslims were also holding a meeting 900 feet from the scene of the attack,” Racho notes. “The Muslims were holding their own prayer, were vilifying Christianity” within earshot of the worshiping Christians.
