Threat of possible terrorist attacks in Nairobi, Kenya

The Australian government has issued an alert that intelligence information suggests an increased threat of terrorist attacks against crowded locations in Nairobi, Kenya, in the near future.

Sitata reminds travellers to minimize risk by remaining aware in your surroundings and alert to personal security. Be aware of exit routes through crowds, and avoid the middle of large crowds. Be ready to react very quickly to any sign of an emergency. If possible, avoid areas that are frequented by tourists or Westerners in particular, and avoid crowded markets and other areas.
