Al Qaeda threat to Obama's grandmother in Kenya

Barcelona (Editorial) .- Sarah Obama, grandmother of U.S. President, Barack Obama, has been threatened by Al-Shabab, a militant group linked to al Qaeda fighting in Somalia. So says the publication Somalia Report, which explains that the security around Obama's grandmother in Kogelo in western Kenya, have increased after the death of the leader of Al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden.

Charles Owino, local police spokesman, confirmed these measures to the African publishing and wondered: "Why should not we take these threats seriously?". Security in Kenya, one of the main U.S. allies in the region on terrorism, has intensified after the death of Bin Laden. In 1998 the U.S.

embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam suffered two attacks, which killed 224 people. In 2002, three suicide bombers blew themselves up at the Hotel Mombasa Kenya, killing 15 people.
