American Citizens, Establishments Under Threat in South Asia

The United States has warned its citizens against traveling in South and Central Asia following a recent roadside bomb attack in Pakistan that left three U.S. aid officials among eight killed, according to Asian News International. The U.S. State Department said al-Qaida and Taliban extremists, including other associated terror groups, may stage bomb and rocket attacks against U.S. nationals and American installations around the region. The U.S. government also warned that Americans might fall victim to abductions, assassinations and carjacking.
