JNS.org – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed a report on Thursday claiming that an assassination attempt  was thwarted while he was in Kenya during his four state tour of Africa.

“The answer is we know nothing about it because there is nothing in it,” Netanyahu said.

The Kuwaiti daily newspaper, al-Jarida reported on Thursday that an anonymous source said that Kenyan security forces told Netanyahu’s security guards to change the route of the convoy before they left the local airport heading for his hotel in Nairobi.
