Kenyan government officials indefinitely closed the Somali border crossing along the coast at Lamu county, according to reports on Tuesday, June 11. Authorities stated the move was due to the trafficking of drugs, people, and illicit goods in the area. Additional security patrols were reportedly deployed to enforce the measure and secure the border.
Individuals in the area are advised to adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and remain vigilant for militant and criminal behavior.
Many Western governments advise against travel to Lamu county and the border with Somalia due to the risk of terrorism and violence.
