Whose helicopters are these in Mombasa?

A fleet of light helicopters flew around the coastal city of Mombasa several times in the past week. The helicopters drew lots of attention in Kenya’s second largest city which has experienced a spate of terrorist incidents in recent times.

Pictures and videos taken by Mombasa residents show what seem to be light utility helicopters, possibly the Eurocopter AS 350 or another type with similar appearance.

The question in the minds of many is: who was operating these helicopters and for what reason?

Below is a short (14 seconds) video of the helicopters over the northern suburbs of Mombasa on the evening of Friday 23 May 2014.
