The US Department of State has issued a pre-emptive worldwide travel alert in light of the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks. The travel warning expires on January 2, 2012.

The alert “informs US citizens travelling and residing abroad of the continued threat posed by al-Qa’ida affiliates and its affiliates.”

Though no specific threat has been identified, the department informs US citizens that “in the past, terrorist organisations have on occasion planned their attacks to coincide with significant dates”.
