(WASHINGTON) — Terrorists are believed to be in the final stage of planning an attack in Nairobi, Kenya. That’s the new warning from the U.S. government, which is asking citizens there to be on full alert.
Authorities say the potential attack is targeted at prominent government buildings and hotels frequented by foreigners.
Since Kenya sent troops into neighboring Somalia last year to go after Al-Shabab militants, there have been several grenade attacks targeting mainly local Kenyans at bus stops, bars and restaurants.
