NAIROBI - Britain believes militants are completing plans to attack Kenyan institutions as well as places frequented by expatriates and tourists, the British Foreign Office said on Saturday.

Kenya stepped up security after sending troops into neighboring Somalia last October to pursue Islamist al Shabaab rebels, whom it blames for a string of kidnappings and cross-border attacks, often targeting tourists.

"We believe that terrorists may be in the final stages of planning attacks. Attacks could be indiscriminate and target Kenyan institutions as well as places where expatriates and foreign travelers gather," the Foreign Office statement said.

London did not change its overall advice - to avoid non-essential travel within 60 km of the border with Somalia or in coastal areas within 150 km of the border.
