U.S. Embassy in Kenya Warns of Possible Attack on Westerners

(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Embassy in Kenya warned its citizens of a possible attack in Kenya targeting westerners, three weeks after a raid by an al-Qaeda-linked militant group in the capital, Nairobi, left at least 21 people dead.

“Credible information indicates Westerners may be targeted by extremists in Nairobi, Naivasha, Nanyuki and coastal areas,” the embassy said on Twitter. “The U.S. Embassy reminds the public of the continued need for heightened vigilance throughout Kenya, especially in public spaces such as shopping malls, hotels, and places of worship.”
