Kerry Holds Talks on Security, Al Shabaab Threat in Kenya

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta discussed on Monday ways to counter the threat from the al Shabaab militant group that killed 148 people at a Kenyan university last month. Kerry, who arrived on Sunday, also commemorated the 1998 bombing of the U.S. embassy in Nairobi, in which more than 200 people died, before meeting Kenyatta. His Kenyan counterpart Amina Mohamed said last month that Nairobi wanted more help with intelligence and security measures from U.S. and European allies to prevent further attacks by the radical Somali movement.
