The Department of State remains concerned about the continued threat of terrorist attacks and other violent actions against U.S. citizens.
The last “worldwide caution” was issued in July 2012.
Al-Qaida, its affiliated organizations, and other terrorist organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. citizens and U.S. interests in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics including suicide operations, assassinations, kidnappings, hijackings and bombings," the caution says. "Extremists may elect to use conventional or non-conventional weapons, and target both official and private interests.
Terrorists may target Americans at high-profile sporting events, residential areas, business offices, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, public areas and other tourist destinations -- in reality, just about anywhere.
Northern Mali and the border area with Algeria is very dangerous.
India has also experienced insurgent and terrorist attacks and in Central Asia, many of the same terror groups that operate in Afghanistan and Pakistan maintain cells.
Travelers are advised to check the State Department’s site before traveling to any of the listed regions.
