US Issues Worldwide Travel Alert For Americans Citing Terror Threats

The US State Department has issued a Worldwide Travel Alert for its citizens amid series of terror attacks across the globe including the recent Paris, Mali and Egypt.

The warning has come just three days ahead of the Thanksgiving Day and it would expire on February 24, 2016.

The current information suggests terror attack plans are in process by terror groups like ISIS, al-Qaida and Boko Haram in multiple regions across the world using conventional as well as non-conventional weapons.

The State Department had issued similar alerts earlier after Osama bin Laden’s death and on 10th anniversary of 9/11 terror attacks.

Talking to the media the State Department officials said such alerts are not based on intelligence knowledge, but to ensure the US citizens are cautious.

The alert added people should be aware of immediate surroundings and also avoid crowded places. People should monitor media as well as local information sources on travel plans and activities.
