The U.S. State Department announced Jan. 10 that Americans may be at risk of terrorist attacks on the island of Zanzibar. State Department officials say they have received information that a terrorist group may be planning an attack at a location frequented by Westerners, which could be a restaurant, club or hotel. Travelers to Zanzibar, Pemba or nearby coastal locations should be especially cautious and consider avoiding places where Westerners congregate.
