    U.S. issues warning on imminent attack in Kenya's second city Mombasa

    By AFP
    Nairobi Saturday, 23 June 2012

    The U.S. embassy in Kenya on Saturday warned of the threat of an imminent attack on Mombasa and urged nationals to shun the country's second city.

    "This is to alert all U.S. citizens in Kenya, or planning to travel to Kenya in the near future, that the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi has received information of an imminent threat of a terrorist attack in Mombasa, Kenya," a statement said.

    "All U.S. government travel to Mombasa is suspended until July 1, 2012."

    The warning came as Kenyan police said they had detained two Iranian nationals over suspected links to a terror network planning bombings in Nairobi and Mombasa.

    "We are holding these two suspects, and they are being interrogated to establish their involvement in terrorism activities," said Aggrey Adoli, police chief for Coast province.

    "They have been helpful, it is through them that we were able to find some chemicals which we believe is used to make explosives," he told AFP.

    One was arrested in Nairobi and the other in Mombasa.

    Strange indeed, I thought IRANIAS and Al Kheida/Al-Shabaab are poles apart!
