US State Department Issues South Africa Travel Alert




The U.S. State Department has issued a travel alert to U.S citizens living in South Africa or traveling there for the World Cup.

“There is a heightened risk that extremist groups will conduct terrorist acts within South Africa in the near future,” the department said in an alert Thursday. “While a number of terrorist threats against the World Cup in South Africa have appeared in the media in recent weeks and months, the U.S. government has no information on any specific, credible threat of attack that any individual or group is planning to coincide with the tournament.”

The State Department said it would make any information public on “a specific and credible threat.”
