U.S. Says Terror Attack in Kenya May Be Imminent

The U.S. is warning Americans in Kenya a terror attack may be imminent.

The embassy in a note to U.S. citizens living in or visiting Kenya said on Saturday that reprisal attacks could be directed at "prominent Kenyan facilities and areas where foreigners are known to congregate, such as malls and night clubs."

Kenya launched an attack on al Shabaab militants in Somalia blaming them for recent kidnappings in Nairobi. Al-Shabaab said they didn't do it.

The rebels have warned Nairobi to withdraw from its southern strongholds or risk bringing the "flames of war" into Kenya.
