Israeli prime minister welcomed to Kenya amid heavy security

05 July 2016, 11:00

Nairobi - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, currently in Kenya, will hold bilateral talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta on counter-terrorism, energy and agriculture, amid tight security.

Kenya's presidential communications unit said in a statement Tuesday that Netanyahu was given a 19-gun salute and a guard of honor by Kenyans soldiers at the president's official residence.

Netanyahu is the first ruling Israeli prime minister to visit Kenya. Roads have been closed as part of the security for Netanyahu's visit causing hours-long traffic snarl-ups. Kenya has long been a target of extremist attacks which have hit Israeli interests.

In a near simultaneous attack in November 2002, al-Qaida extremists blew up an explosive laden vehicle at an Israeli-owned hotel at the Kenyan coast killing 11 people, while others shot at an Israeli jetliner.
