Bin Laden death ups terror risk for Americans: US

The State Dept said in a global travel warning that Americans should take precaution and maintain vigilance about terrorist threats.



Washington: The Obama administration says
Osama bin Laden`s death has raised the risk of anti-American
violence worldwide.

The State Department said in a global travel warning
on Tuesday that Americans should take precaution and maintain
vigilance about terrorist threats, demonstrations and the
possibility of violence against US citizens.

It said al-Qaida and other groups are planning terror
attacks against US interests in Europe, Asia, Africa and
Middle East.

The department said attacks may be in the form of
suicide operations, assassinations, kidnappings, hijackings
and bombings.

Americans should consider the potential for attacks on
transportation systems and tourist infrastructure, it said. It
noted such attacks in Moscow, London, Madrid, Glasgow and New
York in recent years.

The department also warned Americans to avoid
demonstrations in Arab countries because they can turn
violent.
