At least 48 people have died after suspected Islamist militants attacked hotels and a police station in a Kenyan coastal town, officials say.

Witnesses in Mpeketoni said gun battles went on for several hours and reported seeing buildings set on fire.

The town is close to Lamu island, which is a well-known tourist resort.

Dennis Okari says people were inside watching the World Cup when the blasts happened.
