Tomorrow, the celebration at the Muslim world Eid, a festival that marks the end of Ramadan, has set the United States on alert, which believes that there could be a terrorist attack in the Middle East and North Africa.
The European Commission (EC), although it does not has news of the existence of specific threats against its embassies in the Middle East, has already taken the “necessary precautions,” informed the EU spokesman, Alexandre Polack.
United States has increased precautions regarding security after the attack on its consulate in Benghazi (eastern Libya) on September 11 last year, which killed four Americans, including the Ambassador Chris Stevens. The case led to congressional Republicans to accuse the State Department of not taking sufficient precautions to protect its diplomats.
The U.S. government has instructed embassies and 21 consulates in the Middle East, including Egypt, Israel, and North Africa to remain closed tomorrow for possible terrorist threats that suggets that Al Qaeda and its affiliated organizations continue to plan joint terrorist attacks in the area and beyond.
