Terror Threat to Americans in Japan, South Korea

Friday, 07 September 2001 12:00 AM

In Washington, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher told reporters, "We in the U.S. government, we received information about a possible threat to U.S. military facilities or to establishments that are frequented by U.S. military personnel in Japan and Korea."

A senior State Department official later told reporters that the threat was "Middle East related" but would not elaborate on the source of the threat.

"We understand that there may be groups that are targeting the military, not just facilities but on the outside: nightclubs, bars, restaurants, shopping districts, whatever. Because of that we feel that we have an obligation to tell the general public if they find themselves in the same places."

Boucher said the United States was revising its June 22 worldwide caution to Americans to reflect these recent threats. The current caution for U.S. citizens makes specific references to Osama bin Laden's network, the group alleged to have masterminded the 1998 bombings of U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
