    Quiet rumblings from expats in the Middle East alerted us that something could be amiss. Whisperings about embassy closings and high security alerts weren't immediately alarming, but indicated that something could be happening.

    It appears those concerns were warranted as the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert, particularly significant in the Middle East and North Africa, on August 2nd.

    The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the continued potential for terrorist attacks, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arabian Peninsula. Current information suggests that al-Qa’ida and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August.

    Have the closures or warning affected you or your family? Let us know what questions, concerns, or information you have.

    Read more about the alert and how to manage fear abroad on the post "US Issues Worldwide Travel Alert - Should You Be Worried?"
