LONDON: A British travel agency says it is evacuating hundreds of tourists from Kenya after Britain's Foreign Office warned people to leave because of terrorist threats.

Package holiday operator Thomson says it is flying all its customers on holiday in Kenya back to the UK today and tomorrow following updated travel advice from the government.

The Foreign Office on Tuesday said all but essential travel to Mombasa island and the surrounding coastal area should be avoided, and that visitors already there should leave.

Thomson said it has about 400 customers in Kenya, including those in Mombasa and on safari.

The company is also cancelling all flights to Mombasa until the end of October
