US warns of possible attack of its interests in SA

JOHANNESBURG – THE United States warned its citizens on Tuesday of a possible attack by “extremists” against US facilities or interests in South Africa, in a rare security alert in a stable democracy seldom associated with Islamist militancy.

In a statement on its website, the embassy said it had no information about a specific target or timing, but advised US citizens to review their personal security plans and be vigilant. – Reuters
