Luxury hotels may be terrorist targets

Tourists urged to avoid luxury hotels in Abuja

In an unusually specific warning, the American Embassy in the Nigerian capital Abuja has warned that guests should avoid the city’s luxury hotels such as the Hilton, the Nicon Luxury and the Sheraton. Following the attacks late last week in towns like Damaturu, the embassy says that the hotels may be targets for bomb attacks by Islamist militants linked to the Boko Haram group.
An attack could be launched close to the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha. The aim of Boko Haram is to work with al Qaeda in pushing Nigeria into a civil war like the one Somalia is suffering.
