The United States Embassy in Nairobi has issued a security alert over suspected terror attacks in Nairobi and other parts of the country.

In a statement on Friday, the Embassy urged its citizens to be cautious while visiting recreational centres and other crowded places frequented by foreigners and tourists.

The American Embassy further noted that areas such as hotels, embassies, restaurants, malls and markets, schools, police stations and places of worship could also pose a risk of attack from terror groups.

“Locations frequented by U.S. citizens and other foreigners and tourists in Nairobi and elsewhere in Kenya continue to be attractive targets to terrorists planning to conduct potentially imminent attacks,” read a section of the statement.

“Terrorist groups could attack with little or no warning, targeting hotels, embassies, restaurants, malls and markets, schools, police stations, places of worship, and other places frequented by foreigners and tourists.”

The statement comes amid attacks in Northern Kenya regions where suspected Al Shabaab militants have killed dozens of civilians and police officers.
