A religious leader on Kenya's coast says that a cleric who preaches at a mosque whose last imam was mysteriously killed has died in a barrage of bullets
Kisauni police chief Julius Wanjohi confirmed the deaths but refused to release more information.
Ismael preached at Mombasa's Masjid Musa Mosque, where Aboud Rogo Mohammed once preached. Mohammed was shot dead in August 2012, but a Kenyan government task force failed to establish the perpetrator. The assassination sparked days of deadly violence.
The deaths come less than two weeks after militants attacked Nairobi's Westgate Mall, killing more than 60 people.
