Washington: The United States has warned its citizens against travel to Kyrgyzstan due to violent clashes between government and opposition forces and the possibility of terrorists targeting US citizens and interests. "The continued instability in the cities of Jalalabad and OSH has significantly added to concerns about the security situation for Americans residing and visiting there," The News quoted the State Department as saying in a statement. "The US government is also aware extremist groups such as the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, a terrorist organization with links to Al-Qaeda, may be planning terrorist acts targeting US government facilities, Americans or American interests in Kyrgyzstan," it said.
