Worldwide Caution

Please note this most recent Worldwide Caution issued by the U.S. Dept.
of State.
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
Office of the Spokesman
April 21, 2003
This supersedes the Worldwide Caution dated March 19, 2003.  It is being
issued to remind U.S. citizens of the continuing threat of terrorist
actions that may target civilians and of the need to remain vigilant.
The U.S. Government remains deeply concerned about the security of U.S.
citizens overseas.  U.S. citizens are encouraged to maintain a high
level of vigilance and to take appropriate steps to increase their
security awareness.  This Worldwide Caution expires on September 20,
2003.
Tensions remaining from the recent events in Iraq may increase the
potential threat to U.S. citizens and interests abroad, including by
terrorist groups.  Terrorist actions may include, but are not limited
to, suicide operations, bombings or kidnappings.  Possible threats
include conventional weapons such as explosive devices or
non-conventional weapons, including chemical or biological agents.
Terrorists do not distinguish between official and civilian targets.
These may include facilities where American citizens and other
foreigners congregate or visit, such as residential areas, clubs,
restaurants, places of worship, schools, hotels, outdoor recreation
events or resorts and beaches.  If such facilities cannot be avoided,
U.S. citizens should increase their security awareness at such
locations.
U.S. Government facilities worldwide remain at a heightened state of
alert.  These facilities may temporarily close or suspend public
services from time to time for security reasons.  In those instances,
U.S. embassies and consulates will make every effort to provide
emergency services to U.S. citizens.  Americans are urged to monitor the
local news and maintain contact with the nearest American embassy or
consulate.
As the Department continues to develop information on any potential
security threats to U.S. citizens overseas, it shares credible threat
information through its Consular Information Program documents,
available on the Internet at http://travel.state.gov.  In addition to
information on the Internet, U.S. travelers can get up-to-date
information on security conditions by calling 1-888-407-4747 in the U.S.
and outside the U.S. and Canada on a regular toll line at
1-317-472-2328.

Thoughts on Study Abroad

A student studying in at the University of New South Wales in Sydney,
Australia stated, “The animals are so weird over here.  80% of all
animals in Australia are uniquely Australian.  Kangaroos and koalas and
wallabies and wombats and platypuses are just some of the randomness
that is Australian wildlife.”
