World Travel alerts in Middle East and North Africa

Global Security would like to inform all employees that the U.S. Department of State has issued a world-wide travel alert for U.S. citizens regarding the potential for terrorist attacks, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. Current intelligence suggests that al-Qa’ida and affiliated groups may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August 2013.  While the threat is specific to the Middle East and North Africa, Global Security recommends that all employees remain vigilant during this elevated threat period while traveling globally.
