      > PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT
      > U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
      > Office of the Spokesman
      >
      > Worldwide Caution
      > October 10, 2002
      >
      > This Worldwide Caution Public Announcement supersedes the Worldwide
      Caution
      > Public Announcement dated September 9, 2002. In light of the recent audio
      > tape attributed to Usama bin Laden and other reports of threats to
      American
      > interests, this Worldwide Caution is being issued to alert Americans to
      the
      > need to remain vigilant and to remind them of the continuing threat of
      > terrorist actions that may target civilians. This Worldwide Caution
      expires
      > on April 8, 2003.
      >
      > The U.S. Government continues to receive credible indications that
      > extremist groups and individuals are planning additional terrorist actions
      > against U.S. interests. Such actions may include, but are not limited to,
      > suicide operations. Because security and security awareness have been
      > elevated within the U.S, the terrorists may target U.S. interests
      overseas.
      > We remind American citizens to remain vigilant with regard to their
      > personal security and to exercise caution.
      >
      > Terrorist groups do not distinguish between official and civilian targets.
      > Attacks on places of worship and schools, and the murders of private
      > American citizens, demonstrate that as security is increased at official
      > U.S. facilities, terrorists and their sympathizers will seek softer
      > targets. These may include facilities where Americans are generally known
      > to congregate or visit, such as clubs, restaurants, places of worship,
      > schools or outdoor recreation events. Americans should increase their
      > security awareness when they are at such locations, avoid them, or switch
      > to other locations where Americans in large numbers generally do not
      > congregate. American citizens may be targeted for kidnapping or
      assassination.
      >
      > U.S. Government facilities worldwide remain at a heightened state of
      alert.
      > These facilities may temporarily close or suspend public services from
      time
      > to time to review their security posture and ensure its adequacy. In those
      > instances, U.S. Embassies and Consulates will make every effort to provide
      > emergency services to American citizens. Americans are urged to monitor
      the
      > local news and maintain contact with the nearest American Embassy or
      Consulate.
      >
      > As the Department continues to develop information on any potential
      > security threats to Americans overseas, it shares credible threat
      > information through its Consular Information Program documents, available
