US Embassy in China Issues Terror Warning

The U.S. Embassy in Beijing has issued a warning of a possible terrorist threat against U.S. interests in China.

An embassy statement Friday says the U.S. government has received unconfirmed information of possible threats, especially in the cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

The embassy says the threat may exist in places where Americans congregate such as clubs, restaurants, schools or outdoor recreation events.

The warning advises U.S. citizens in China to be aware of their surroundings and remain alert to possible threats.

Citizens living or traveling in China are advised to register with the U.S. Embassy or nearest consulate through the State Department Web site. The registration will make them easier to contact in case of emergency.
