Kenya investigates Nairobi airport attack leak
KENYAN Airports Authority (KAA) is investigating a leaked memo warning of planned al-Shabaab attacks.
The unconfirmed memo about attacks on the country’s airports was released without verification, said the KAA.
Although security has been tightened, Kenyan airports are not under imminent threat, it said.
Issued on Friday, the internal memo based on intelligence reports, was leaked to a local radio station and has been widely circulated on social media.
When asked about imminent threats, Kenya Airport Authority Chief of Security, Erick Kiraithe, said: “We are not overlooking the current global terrorism situation” but clarified that “at this point in time, there is no credible information.”
Kenya Airport Authority’s managing director Yatich Kangungo told BBC that they were narrowing down the search for the officer who breached protocol and leaked the memo.
