U.S. asks its citizens to leave Indonesia
Due to constant threats from terrorists, the US Department of State today issued another warning to its citizens to not travel to Indonesia; it also asked its citizens who are already there to leave that country immediately. The US Department of State has already arranged to have its 300 diplomats and their families leave Indonesia, sources say.
It is reported that because of the intensified security measures by the US, terrorists and their supporters might turn to new targets, such as nightclubs, restaurants, and religious or recreation sites. This is the second warning issued by the US government, since the nightclub bombing in Bali took place on October 12. Several media reports say that the Australian government has also asked its citizens to leave Indonesia immediately.
