Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary Karanja Kibicho has advised Kenyans to avoid transiting through UK’s Heathrow Airport because of a substantial threat of possible attack by Al-Qaeda operatives.

According to information provided by US officials, Al Qaeda operatives in Yemen and Syria were developing sophisticated bombs that could bring down a plane. The information states that Britain would be the most likely country to be affected.

Based on this information, Kenyans are advised not to travel through London Heathrow where there is substantial threat of a possible attack.

Kenyans are therefore advised to seek alternative travel routes to connect to the United States and European countries. These include Doha, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Amsterdam and Addis Ababa in order to minimize the risk and avoid possible delays.
