Event:  U.S. citizens are urged to be cautious and vigilant when living and traveling abroad given the potential threat of terrorist attacks and extremist action against U.S. citizens and interests.

·         Report any suspicious activities or security incidents to local police. 
·         Follow the instructions of local authorities especially in an emergency. 
·         Avoid crowded places.
·         Monitor media and local event information sources and factor updated information into your travel plans and activities.
