Terror Alert U.S. Issues Alert for a Possible Attack in Saudi Arabia’s Port City of Jeddah

W A S H I N G T O N, May 16 — The U.S. State Department warned Americans in Saudi Arabia Thursday of a possible imminent terror attack in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah.

"The U.S. Consulate General in Jeddah has received an unconfirmed report that a possible terrorist attack in the Al Hamra district of Jeddah may occur in the near future," the State Department said in a statement. "While we cannot certify the credibility of the threat, in light of recent events this information is being shared with the American community." The State Department advised U.S. citizens in Saudi Arabia to maintain a high level of vigilance and to take steps to increase their security. A variety of intelligence indicates potential al Qaeda related plots to attack U.S. interests in Saudi Arabia, Kenya, and elsewhere, a U.S. official told Reuters on condition of anonymity. "It could be a variety of potential targets. It could be a variety of types of attacks," the official said, adding that the intelligence was of "roughly" similar intensity to that before the bombings in Saudi Arabia earlier this week. Coordinated suicide bomb attacks on Monday in the Saudi capital Riyadh killed 34 people in gated residential compounds that housed foreigners.
