US Warns Of Fresh Saudi Attacks

The United States has warned that new terrorist attacks in Saudi Arabia may be “imminent”. It announced it was closing its embassy and consulates in Saudi Arabia from Wednesday until at least Sunday. It follows a warning from Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Washington – who says he fears a major attack is imminent in either the US or Saudi Arabia. Prince Bandar bin Sultan said the US and Saudi Arabia had picked up electronic “chatter” in the region and in other areas which indicated something else was being planned in addition to the suicide attacks that took place last week.
