MANILA -- The Department of Foreign Affairs has raised crisis alert level 2 in Kenya due to the deteriorating security situation in the African country.

Under Alert Level 2, Filipinos are advised to restrict movement and avoid unnecessary travel and crowded places.

The restriction phase only allows returning overseas Filipino workers with existing employment contracts. No new deployment of workers is allowed with the exception of workers in the United Nations agencies in Kenya.

At least 440 Filipinos in Kenya, most of whom reside in Nairobi, are encouraged to contact the Philippine Embassy in Nairobi for instructions. (PNA)
