MOMBASA, Kenya (Xinhua) -- Police in Kenya's coastal city of Mombasa have detained three suspects on terrorism grounds.
The three were arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of being members of a terrorist group with networks in Uganda, Kenya, Somalia and Egypt, the police said in court documents filed on Thursday.
The trio were arraigned in a Mombasa court on Thursday with anti-terror police seeking 15 days to complete their investigations.
The suspects were captured after hotel staff reported their suspicious activities to police.
Kenya's coast has been the target of the terror group al-Shabab in the past.
