Terror groups may target US interests in Kenya

The US government is warning that a Kenyan terror group with links to the Somali group al-Shabab may seek to target the American private sector in Kenya.



Nairobi: The US government is warning that a Kenyan terror group with links to the Somali group al-Shabab may seek to target the American private sector in Kenya.

A recent report from the US State Department`s Overseas Security Advisory Council says the anti-West ideology shared by al-Shabab and the Kenyan terror group al-Hijra indicate that the groups "may seek to target the US private sector in Kenya."
The report was released in the aftermath of al-Shabab`s attack on Nairobi`s Westgate Mall, a gunfire and grenade assault that killed at least 67 people.
The report calls for Americans to exercise extra vigilance in Nairobi, Kenya`s capital, and the coastal city of Mombasa at clubs, hotels, resorts, shopping centers, restaurants and places of worship.
