THE United States has warned citizens of possible new terrorist threats in East Africa from affiliates and sympathisers of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network.
The State Department "continues to receive threat information pertaining to this region", it said today.
The statement renewed an existing January 4 alert and added seaports to a lengthy list of possible targets.
"Supporters of al-Qaeda and other extremists are still active in East Africa," it said.
The department "believes it is prudent to alert American citizens that such information is being received so American citizens can make an informed decision whether to travel to or remain in East Africa".
Are these ragheads moving into africa from the middle east, or are they native islamists?
Stay away and concentrate on growing a great lawn this year.
It's weird the Free Speech that IS tolerated ... top story of the breaking news and everything.
Have we forgotten in our rush to war and our reckless gambling on the strength that is Weapons of Mass Distraction that our President wants us to foot a cool 15 billion dollar tab to inject these folks with USAID?
