US warns of possible attacks in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia

(VOVworld) - The US embassy in Afghanistan issued an emergency warning to US citizens on Monday that it had received reports on possible attacks targeting the Star Hotel in Kabul. The US embassy advised Americans to avoid the hotel and to remain vigilant when staying in hotels in Kabul or at large gatherings. The warning followed at least two rockets attacks in the diplomatic zone of Kabul last weekend, just hours after US Secretary of State John Kerry held meetings with Afghan government leaders in Kabul.
