U.S. repeats warning of attacks
on Westerners in Kuwait

Monday, December 27, 2004

The United States has again warned of an imminent Islamic insurgency attack in Kuwait.

Officials said Islamic insurgents linked to Al Qaida were planning a major attack in Kuwait. They said the likely target, but not the sole target, would be Westerners in the sheikdom.

The State Department said groups deemed terrorists were planning attacks in the near future. The department called on Americans in Kuwait to maintain a low profile and avoid locations frequented by Westerners.

Some of those locations warned by the department focused on so-called soft targets. They included restaurants, hotels, clubs, shopping areas, public transportation, residential areas and oil-related facilities and personnel.
