Terror Threat in Mali

The US Embassy in Bamako, Mali:

The Embassy is issuing this Warden Message to notify the U.S. citizen community that the Embassy has credible information of a possible attack in the immediate future against the U.S. Embassy in Bamako and U.S.-related interests to include the American International School of Bamako (AISB).  It also has credible information of a possible kidnapping plot targeting Americans and other Westerners in Bamako.

U.S. citizens should maintain good personal security practices and remain aware of their surroundings at all times, including always locking their homes and cars, varying routes and time of travel, and avoiding drawing attention to themselves.  When going out, they should avoid being part of large, highly visible groups of Westerners, and should be particularly alert when frequenting locales associated with Westerners.

We’ll see if further information emerges. Sounds like the Embassy suspects another AQIM attack/kidnapping.
