U.S. Department of State Threat Level and Closure of the U.S. Embassy in Kenya

Philip Reeker, Deputy Press Secretary
Excerpt from Daily Press Briefing
Washington, DC
June 23, 2003

QUESTION: What can you tell us about threat level and closure of the U.S. Embassy in Kenya?

MR. REEKER: Kenya. The U.S. Embassy in Nairobi is completely closed today to review its security posture. As you are aware, we often close our embassies or other diplomatic offices abroad to review security. That is mentioned in our Worldwide Caution on Security that has been in place for some time.

QUESTION: When you say completely closed, you mean that nobody's -- nobody's going there, or just closed to the public?

MR. REEKER: That is my understanding, that it is completely closed today. I can't tell you that there is, you know, not a single person that may go in or out, but there are no public services being offered. Obviously, for American citizens in need of emergency services, they can contact the Embassy. There are emergency numbers available and we can always endeavor to help Americans in need, but basic services provided by the Embassy in terms of visas and other things would be suspended today, and Monday/Tuesday if it remains closed.
