Washington - The United States said on Friday it would move some staff from its embassy in Kenya to other countries following a string of militant attacks on the country's coast.

“Based on the recent changes in Kenya's security situation, the embassy is also relocating some staff to other countries,” the State Department said in an updated travel warning for Kenya, which warned US citizens of the risks of travel to the east African country.
