NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - Kenya's police commissioner is warning that al-Qaida-linked Somali insurgents that have already carried out an international attack may try to strike Kenya over the Easter holidays.
The police official says authorities have received reliable information that the al-Shabab militia group has threatened to attack public areas such as places of worship, recreational areas and major government buildings.
Al-Shabab - Somalia's most dangerous militant group - claimed responsibility for the double suicide bomb attack in Uganda's capital in July during the World Cup final. The blasts killed 76 people.
The group has threatened to attack Kenya for allegedly helping Somali government troops and their allies attack the militants' bases in Somalia
