At least one police officer has been injured in a riot at a mosque linked to recruiting Islamic extremists in Kenya's coastal resort of Mombasa.
An Associated Press reporter saw a police officer being led out with a bloodied face, perhaps the victim of a stabbing.
Last October, gunmen killed a Muslim cleric and three others in a hail of bullets in Mombasa, sparking street violence by youths who accused the police of targeted killings of Muslim leaders.
Kenyan police have linked the Masjid Musa mosque to recruitment of militants for Somalia's al-Shabab terrorist organization.
