Britain Warns of Saudi Attacks
The British government is warning that terror attacks in Saudi Arabia could be in the final stages of preparation.
In advice about foreign travel published on its Web site, Britain’s Foreign Office has warned British nationals for several months against all but essential travel to the kingdom, especially after attacks in Riyadh in May and November.
It has repeatedly said it thought more attacks were planned in Saudi Arabia. However, on Sunday it added that “these could be in the final stages of preparation.” …
The new guidance coincided with news that sky marshals will travel on some British passenger planes following warnings from the United States about a heightened terror threat.
It also followed a British newspaper report on Sunday which said Saudi security forces had seized light planes packed with explosives, foiling a plot to blow up a Western airliner.
