The U.S. State Department urged American citizens not to travel to western Kenyan cities where political turmoil and bloody conflicts have been going on for weeks.

"U.S. citizens should avoid all travel to the cities of Kisumu, Nakuru and Naivasha, and defer all non-essential travel to the remaining portions of Nyanza, Western, and Rift Valley provinces," the State Department said in a statement.

"The situation in Kenya is volatile and subject to change on short notice," the statement said, adding that non-emergency personnel and family members have been authorized to relocate from Kisumu to Nairobi.

The riots have reportedly killed more than 800 people and displacing over 250,000 others in Kenya since the Dec. 27 presidential election.
