Foreign Ministry Warns Traveling to Kenya Could be Dangerous

The Foreign Ministry has warned Russian citizens against traveling to Kenya.

Moscow is concerned with tensions remaining high in Kenya following disturbances in the Kenyan port of Mombasa the ministry said in a statement Monday.

"The Russian Foreign Ministry recommends Russian nationals and tour operators to take into account these circumstances when making decisions on tourist trips to Kenya in the near future," the statement said.

Mombasa has seen clashes between police officers and people angered at the recent murder of a Muslim cleric following a terrorist attack on a shopping mall in the Kenyan capital Nairobi in which more than 60 people were killed.
