Washington: The US embassies in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Thailand are warning of the potential for anti-American protests and violence after the release of a Senate report outlining harsh interrogation techniques used by the CIA on terror suspects.

In identical notices to Americans in the three countries, the embassies said "the release of declassified versions of the executive summary, findings, and conclusions of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence's study on the CIA's rendition, detention and interrogation program could prompt anti-US protests and violence against US interests, including private US citizens."

The US Consulate in Chiang Mai, Thailand, also issued the warning.

Afghanistan and Thailand were host to two of the secret facilities where prisoners were interrogated.

The notices urged Americans to be alert to their surrounding and take appropriate safety precautions, including avoiding demonstrations or confrontational situations.
