The court was told that the attack was orchestrated by the militants, who had already entered the country secretly.
The revelation came after three people were arrested by officers of the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU), who said they had been in constant contact with the militants who had already entered Kenya to carry out the attack.
Relying on a document prepared by the ATPU, Mr Isiaho informed Mombasa Resident Magistrate Vincent Adet that the three were being investigated for being in contact with the militants.
The three are Osman Mohamed Hassan, Mohamed Ibrahim Hassan and Hussein Ibrahim Hassan.
"The suspects were in constant contact with the (seven) terrorists," said Mr Isiaho.

The suspects were found with four mobile phones.Police say preliminary investigations have revealed that the three have family ties to terrorists in Somalia.
Mr Mohamed Ibrahim Hassan is believed to be a Somali national, who entered the country on an undisclosed mission.
"At the time of his arrest, the suspect was in the process of obtaining Kenyan registration," said Isaiho.
