U.S. Embassy in Saudi Arabia Issues Terror Warning

The U.S. warned that terrorists could be planning to attack or kidnap American oil workers in Saudi Arabia, and said it is shutting down diplomatic services on Sunday and Monday because of “heightened security concerns.”

The U.S. embassy in Riyadh, the Saudi capital, on Saturday warned Americans to take extra precautions and limit non-essential travel.

A day earlier, the embassy said in a notice that it had information that “as of early March, individuals associated with a terrorist organization could be targeting Western oil workers, possibly to include those U.S. citizens working for oil companies in the Eastern Province, for an attack(s) and/or kidnapping(s).”
