MSM picks up on US warning of terrorist threat to western ships off east Africa

As I posted here, the US government has issued a warning to shipping concerning possible speed boat terrorist threats off East Africa. Now the MSM is picking up the story -the AFP reports US warns of terrorist threat to western ships off east Africa
The threat applies to inland channels, ports, territorial and international waters in and off the coasts of the Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, the Seychelles, Somalia, Sudan and Tanzania, according to the warning.


Update: In my original post, I had a map of the Horn of Africa. Here's an East Africa map covering the locations set forth above -it's a big area. If forced to guess, I suspect the areas around Somalia, Yeman and Eritrea are "primer" than other mentioned areas.
