US Embassy warns of imminent terrorists attacks in Kabul

KABUL: The United States has said it had intelligence pointing to an “imminent” terror attack in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, and implored US citizens to “exercise extreme caution” when moving about the city for the coming 48 hours. The bulletin, issued as usual by the US embassy, coincided with fresh tensions as the leaders of Afghanistan and neighbouring Pakistan met for informal talks on the fringes of the world climate change talks in Paris on resurrecting peace talks with Taliban insurgents. In a statement issued on its website, the embassy said it had “received credible reports of an imminent attack in Kabul city, Kabul province, Afghanistan within the next 48 hours”. “During this period of heightened threat, the U.S. Embassy strongly urges U.S. citizens to exercise extreme caution if moving around the city. There were no further details regarding the targets, timing, or method of the planned attack.” Within hours of the warning being issued, the office of the Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif confirmed in a statement that he had held talks in the French capital with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on plans to resurrect peace talks with Taliban leaders.
