U.S Warn Place Citizens On Alert Ahead Of Obama's Visit To Kenya
The US has issued a travel warning for Kenya ahead of a visit by President Barack Obama, who is due to address a summit on global entrepreneurship.
The summit, to be held in the capital, Nairobi, from 24-26 July, could provide "a target for terrorists", the US State Department said in a statement.
In 2013, at least 67 people died in an attack by al-Shabab militants on the Westgate shop centre in Nairobi.
The Somali-based Islamist militant group says it is at war with Kenya.
Their deadliest assault to date happened at a university in the north-easter Kenyan town of Garissa in April, when four gunmen killed 148 people.
