The U.S., Australia and Canada warned Saturday that terror groups were likely planning “imminent attacks” in India’s capital and foreigners there should be vigilant.
The U.S. Embassy’s alert, adding the word “imminent,” appeared to be more urgent than an advisory last month that cited increased indications of attacks in New Delhi.
The warnings noted that markets and other areas frequented by Westerners in New Delhi have been targeted in past attacks.
Militants linked to Pakistan-based Islamic groups have been blamed for previous attacks in the Indian capital.
The U.S. alert said Americans in India should maintain “a high level of vigilance,” remain aware of their surroundings and watch out for unattended packages.
