ALGIERS, ALGERIA (Worthy News)– The U.S. Embassy in Algeria has alerted its staff for a possible terrorist attack over the 4th of July weekend.
The U.S. Embassy in Algeria has instructed embassy employees to avoid U.S. owned or operated hotels through the U.S. Independence Day (July 4) and Algerian Independence Day (July 5) holiday weekend. As of June 2014 an unspecified terrorist group may have been considering attacks in Algiers, possibly in the vicinity of a U.S. branded hotel.
The U.S. Embassy, when conditions warrant, takes steps like this to balance our continued operations with security and safety. However, beyond this announcement we do not discuss specific threat information, security considerations or measures, or other steps we may be taking.
