MOMBASA, Kenya — Two Christian clerics on Kenya's coast were killed in separate attacks over the weekend, witnesses said, two weeks after the killing of a Muslim cleric sparked deadly riots in port city Mombasa.

Charles Matole, a leader of Mombasa's Vikwatani Redeemed Gospel Church, was found dead in the church Sunday morning, shot in the head with a Bible in his lap.

In an apparently unrelated killing in the town of Kilifi, about 60 kilometers (35 miles) north of Mombasa, the body of a pastor with the East African Pentecostal Churches, Ebrahim Kidata, was found dumped in a patch of bushes, congregation members said.
