Credible Threats to Tourist Sites April 26, 2016

Recommended Posts

The U.S. Embassy in Ankara informs U.S. citizens that the U.S. government continues to receive credible indications that terrorist groups are seeking opportunities to attack popular tourist destinations throughout Turkey.  The U.S. Embassy reminds U.S. citizens that foreign tourists in Turkey have been explicitly targeted by terrorist organizations, and advises U.S. citizens to be mindful of the potential for danger in crowded public areas and at popular tourist destinations.
