Britain to suspend Kenya flights due to "imminent threat": travel industry

Britain is suspending all flights to and from Kenya from because of an “imminent” threat, a British travel agents’ association said the day after the United States warned against travel to the east African country. The British transport ministry has told airlines “the threat level to UK civil aviation interests in Kenya has increased to imminent,” the Association of British Travel Agents said. “Accordingly, from 10.00 pm tonight (2100 GMT) … all UK airline operations to and from Kenya must be suspended.” There was no official British government confirmation. The news came just hours after Kenyan authorities said they had information that one of the suspects indicted for the 1998 bombing of the US embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam was planning another attack. “We have established that he (Fazul Abdallah Mohammed) is involved in a conspiracy for another attack and we are appealing to members of the public who may have information on him to report to the security agencies,” Matthew Kabetu, the head of the Kenyan anti-terrorism police unit, told AFP.
