U.S. Sees Terrorist Attack Threat in Nigeria

U.S. and other Western interests in Nigeria are at risk of terrorist attack, the United States embassy in Nigeria said on Thursday, as reported by Reuters. The official warning, in a message for U.S. citizens in Nigeria, gave few details, but said potential targets included official and commercial installations in the capital Abuja and the commercial city of Lagos. In Washington, a U.S. official said the advisory was based on "very nonspecific threat information." Militant attacks on multi-billion dollar Western oil facilities in the Niger Delta are common, but there has never been any large scale terrorist attack on Western targets outside the Niger Delta in the far south of the country. Analysts said the alert on Nigeria, which is the fifth largest oil supplier to the United States, could be related to the anniversary of the September 11 attacks. (Reuters)
