Kenya Public Announcement

Issued by US Department of State

Dec 02, 2003

This Public Announcement is being issued to alert U.S. citizens to the potential for terrorist activities in Kenya. This Public Announcement supplements the Travel Warning for Kenya, issued on September 25, 2003, and expires on January 9, 2004.

The following information has not been corroborated, but, in the interest of time and public safety, the Department felt it prudent to provide the same information to the traveling public. Recently, the U.S. Government received an anonymous warning detailing terrorist threats aimed at American and Western interests in downtown Nairobi, Kenya, specifically the Stanley Hotel and the Hilton Hotel. The timing of the threat is within the next several days.

American citizens in Kenya should remain vigilant, particularly in public places frequented by foreigners such as hotels, shopping malls, restaurants, and cafes, and should also avoid demonstrations and large crowds. A Travel Warning for Kenya issued in September 25, 2003, remains in effect. It urges all Americans to defer non-essential travel to Kenya at this time.

U.S. citizens planning to travel to Kenya should consult the Department of State's Consular Information Sheet for Kenya, the East Africa Public Announcement and the most recent Worldwide Caution Public Announcement, which are available via the Internet at http://travel.state.gov. American citizens may obtain up-to-date information on security conditions by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States, or 317-472-2328 from overseas.

U.S. citizens visiting or resident in Kenya are encouraged to register with the U.S. Embassy, where they may obtain updated information on travel and security within Kenya. Security updates are e-mailed to all registered Americans on a monthly basis.
