    The global economic downturn hindered recovery, then terror attacks by the Islamic extremist group al-Shabaab began to escalate in 2011. Al-Shabaab struck Mombasa several times and along the coast to the city’s north, prompting strict travel warnings from Western governments.
    The U.S. and U.K. lifted travel bans for government staff last year, but the U.S. State Department continued to preach caution in a new warning in 2015, citing “potential terrorist threats aimed at U.S., Western and Kenyan interests.”
    To counter the rise of al-Shabaab, Kenyan authorities launched aggressive counterterrorism operations in Muslim communities. The cycle of attacks and government retaliation have created new waves of fear around#Diani, as many in the tourism industry here say that Kenyan Christians are now wary of becoming targets on the coast.#

    Default Some context

    Kenya has many problems, including a predicting doubling of its population and of course its politics. As shown in this BBC News report:
    The president of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, has said his country has "a problem" with its judiciary after the Supreme Court cancelled his victory in last month's presidential election.

    Away from the cities Aidan Hartley, a white Kenyan farmer and journalist, has a regular column in 'The Spectator' and his latest column is about the election contest locally. No wonder Kenya has problems.

    Al-Shabaab is one problem, it might not even the main problem for Kenya's politicians.

    In Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve, a small team of rangers equipped with thermal imaging cameras and drones are fighting back against an onslaught of heavily-armed poachers.
