The U.S. Embassy Kuwait issued the following:
The Embassy is issuing this message because it has credible information that terrorist groups are developing near-term plans for attacks against unspecified targets in Kuwait. The Embassy reminds all U.S. citizens to exercise caution, maintain a low profile, avoid areas where Westerners are known to congregate and immediately report any unusual or suspicious activity to the Kuwaiti police or to the Embassy.
U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for further terrorist actions against U.S. citizens abroad, including in the Persian Gulf region. U.S. citizens who travel to, or remain in, Kuwait should register at the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Kuwait and enroll in the warden system (emergency alert network) to obtain updated information on travel and security in Kuwait. Warden messages can be found on the U.S. Embassy Kuwait website.
From time to time, the U.S. Embassy in Kuwait may restrict the travel of official Americans or suspend public services for security reasons. In those instances, the Embassy will keep the local American citizen community apprised through the Warden System and make every effort to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens.
American citizens with any questions or concerns may telephone the Embassy at 539-5307/5308, extension 2240. In case of an emergency outside business hours, American citizens may reach the Embassy duty officer by calling 538-2097/2098, or, 539-5307, ext. 5008.
