The United States government has refuted claims appearing in select media outlets that it had prior knowledge of the attack on the DusitD2 complex.

In a statement signed by outgoing envoy Bob Godec, the Department of State denied warning its citizens to keep away from the DusitD2 complex before terrorists reigned terror at the high end business hub.

Speculation was also rife on social media that the embassy advised a US delegation booked at the hotel to swap it for another.

“Contrary to some false reports on social media, the United States had no advance notice of the attack. We deplore the spread of false information in the wake of this tragedy, which only serves to hamper ongoing efforts to defeat terrorism,” read the statement.

Godec added, “We reiterate our deepest condolences to the families and friends of all those who were killed in this craven attack and wish a quick recovery to those who were injured. We stand shoulder to shoulder with Kenya,”
