The UK has issued a travel advisory to its citizens visiting Kenya, warning that terrorists might try to carry out attacks. The Nation reports that it said its nationals needed to be vigilant when visiting areas frequented by foreigners including hotels, beaches, placed of worship, airports and other transport hubs. The advisory lists the north eastern counties of Garissa, and Mandera as well as some parts of Tana River and Lamu counties as areas British nationals should not visit if possible. It comes days after terrorists attacked the Manda-Magogoni military base in Lamu.
