US Embassy in Indonesia Warns of ‘High’ Terrorism Threat After Slew of Attacks

On April 7, the U.S. Embassy in Indonesia issued a security alert for American citizens, asking them to maintain increased security awareness. The warning came after the March 28 suicide bombing at the Makassar Cathedral and the March 31 terrorist attack at the Indonesian National Police (INP) headquarters.

According to the alert, Indonesian authorities warn that the terrorism threat level remains high. The INP may visibly increase its presence at Indonesian government buildings, tourist sites, churches, malls, and other venues. The U.S. Embassy advises heightened personal security awareness, particularly in public areas.

The Embassy also asks American citizens to exercise additional vigilance especially in crowded streets, shopping areas, places of worship, and locations with large crowds.

They should also avoid demonstrations and large gatherings.
