Kenyans warned against travelling through Heathrow Airport

12 July 2014, 17:58

Nairobi - Kenyans have been advised not to travel through London’s Heathrow International Airport in the UK following US officials’ warning of a possible attack by members of the Al Qaeda terror group.

The US officials warned that members of the terror group operating in Yemen and Syria were developing bombs that could be smuggled into planes without being detected, The Star reports.

The bombs could be used to bring down a plane and Britain would be the most likely country to be affected.

Following the information, Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary Karanja Kibicho advised Kenyans to seek alternative travel routes to connect to the US and European countries.

Last week, the US embassy in Uganda warned of a "specific threat" by an unknown group to attack Entebbe international airport, which serves the capital Kampala.

The alert came as travellers flying to the US from Europe and the Middle East faced tighter security because of new concerns about the development of explosives that could circumvent airport security.
