US Diplomats in Indonesia Issue Travel, Terror Warnings

The U.S. Embassy in Jakarta has again warned Americans of the threat of terrorist attacks in Indonesia.

The embassy, in a statement released Wednesday, urged Americans to avoid the area around the Jakarta auditorium where the trial of Islamic militant cleric Abu Bakar Bashir is taking place, saying violent street protests could take place.

The embassy said it also continues to receive reports that terror organizations could attempt to carry out attacks against American or other Western interests in Indonesia.
