The American Embassy in Nairobi has issued a security alert warning that there is ‘credible information’ that indicates Westerners may be the target for extremists in Nairobi, Naivasha, Nanyuki and the Coastal region.

It reads:

Credible information indicates Westerners may be targeted by extremists in Nairobi, Naivasha, Nanyuki, and coastal areas of Kenya. 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.
