Kenya bombings prompt Duke travel restrictions

Jun. 16, 2014 @ 09:33 AM

Bombings in Kenya's major cities prompted Duke University's International Travel Oversight Committee to vote to restrict travel to Mombasa and Nairobi, effective May 31.

Nairobi is now "for transit only," meaning that undergraduate students can travel through the city as they enter or leave the country. It can't be their destination unless they petition for a waiver in advance.

Duke undergraduate students known to be in these cities will be notified of the new restrictions and Duke will help with any necessary travel changes.
