Americans In Saudi Warned To Be Alert

Sun., Dec. 10, 1995

More bombings may be planned against Western interests in Saudi Arabia, the State Department said Saturday in warning Americans in the kingdom to remain vigilant.

The department said it has unconfirmed information that commercial and other facilities occupied or used by Americans may be at risk.

“These attacks could occur anywhere in the kingdom,” the U.S. Embassy in Riyadh said in a message relayed by the State Department.

“We continue to stress our previous advice that Americans in Saudi Arabia should be vigilant of their personal security and surroundings at all times and under all circumstances, and should report any suspicious activities to the embassy or nearest U.S. consulate.”

Seven people (including a former Spokane man) were killed in a Nov. 13 truck-bomb blast.
