Kenya Public Announcement

Issued by US Department of State

Dec 02, 2002

This Public Announcement is being issued to provide information regarding terrorist activities in Kenya. It also reiterates the Department of State's continuing concern about the possible heightened risks to American citizens and interests in Kenya. This Public Announcement expires March 3, 2003.

On November 28, there was a car bomb attack on a hotel near Mombasa, Kenya, in which at least 11 people died, and an unsuccessful attempt to shoot down an Israeli charter plane departing Mombasa on the same day. These incidents have highlighted the continuing threat posed by terrorism in East Africa and the capacity of terrorist groups to carry out attacks. U.S. citizens should be aware of the risk of indiscriminate attacks on civilian targets in public places, including tourist sites and other sites where Westerners are known to congregate.

American citizens in Kenya should remain vigilant, particularly in public places frequented by foreigners, such as hotels and shopping malls, and should also avoid demonstrations and large crowds. In particular there is an increased threat against Westerners in the capital, Nairobi. Americans planning to travel to Kenya are encouraged to contact the consular section at the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi (tel. 254-2-537-800) before departure.

Americans should closely monitor the Department's website at http://travel.state.gov. For additional information on travel to Kenya, please consult the Department of State's latest Consular Information Sheet for Kenya. Travelers should also review the Department's Worldwide Caution Public Announcement.
