Three women have been killed after trying to stage an attack at the main police station in the Kenyan port city of Mombasa, officials say.

The women, wearing hijabs, entered the station saying they wanted to report a stolen phone, police added.

One of the women pulled a knife and another threw a petrol bomb, starting a fire. Two officers were injured.

It is not clear who is behind the attack, but the women are believed to be linked to the terrorist group al-Shabab since the militants have staged numerous attacks in Kenya.

The Somalia-based group has been targeting Kenya since 2011, when Kenyan troops were deployed to rid Somalia of the militants.
