The U.S. State Department warned that it had received information of a terrorist threat in Bahrain, but without specific details. The announcement advises Americans to remain vigilant in public places where Westerners congregate. Meanwhile, the British government warned that attacks in Saudi Arabia could be “in the final stages of preparation.” The Foreign Office has warned against non-essential travel for months, but this announcement cites an increased danger. The State Department continues to recommend Americans defer travel to Saudi Arabia and authorized the departure of non-essential personnel and families of U.S. officials. A general threat of terrorist attacks on Americans or U.S. interests also exists in Yemen.
