UK issues Terrorism alert in Countries including Somalia

Source: Suntimes



Sunatimes) United Kingdom Foreign Office has warned that there was a ''high threat'' of attacks in countries including Somalia, Yemen, Egypt and generally the Middle East.
The move came shortly after the State Department issued guidance urging Americans to be vigilant when visiting Europe, highlighting the ''potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure''.
The Foreign Office advice now states: "Like other large European countries, the French/German authorities continue to consider that there is a high threat of terrorism.
"Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places frequented by expatriates and foreign travelers."
Really, they certainly are targeted attacks: Targets will be chosen for maximum casualties, chaos, and disruption of lives and of the economy, to give the impression that no one is safe anywhere. Above all, the targets will be non-Muslims and their un-Islamic governments. Those are the heart of the matter.
Authorities must also consider that first responders will be targeted in a second wave, as we have seen in many other jihadist attacks.
The terrorist alert comes days after the new al-Qaida boss, Ayman alzawaahiri threatened to attack the western Nations including the United States and Israel.
The main threat in Somalia towards UK citizens in the alshabab insurgents which just like al-Qaida declared a holy war against the western nations.
