03/13/2015 (Kenya) – In light of many media accounts regarding the reported death of a key al-Shabaab leader, Adan Garaar, on March 12, the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi would like to inform U.S. citizens that the potential for attacks exists throughout Kenya in the near-term. Although there is no information about a specific location in Kenya for an attack, U.S. citizens are reminded that the potential for terrorism exists. Potential targets for attacks could include hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, shopping malls, diplomatic missions, transportation hubs, religious institutions, government offices, or public transportation. The Embassy also reminds U.S. citizens that crime is rampant, indiscriminate, at times violent, and happens in all parts of Kenya, at all hours. U.S. citizens are encouraged to review their personal security plans, remain aware of their surroundings, and monitor local events.
