Britain warns of possible terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia

A terrorist attack could be in the final stages of preparation in Saudi Arabia, the British government warned, in the latest of a spate of alerts over travel to the oil-rich kingdom. “Following terrorist attacks in Riyadh in May and November, we continue to believe terrorists are planning further attacks in Saudi Arabia, and that these could be in the final stages of preparation,” the Foreign Office said. “We advise British nationals against all but essential travel to Saudi Arabia,” it added in a travel advisory posted on its website. A Foreign Office spokesman declined to give further information on the new warning, saying only that travel advice was kept under constant review based on all the information available. Saudi authorities and foreign embassies in the kingdom have been on heightened alert since the May 12 and November 8 attacks on residential compounds in Riyadh that killed a total of 52 people. The travel warning also comes as governments across the world are stepping up precautions against the threat of terrorist attacks. Full Story
