Rabat: The US embassy calls for vigilance

The US embassy in Rabat asks US citizens residing in the Kingdom to observe a great deal of caution and vigilance when traveling.

The reasons given in a statement posted on the Chancery USA official website are the possibility of attacks that terrorist groups could prepare.

Also according to the US Embassy, ​​terrorist attacks could occur at any time, targeting tourist sites, as well as markets, bus stations or railway, as well as government buildings.

American citizens are advised to remain very vigilant in places frequented by foreign tourists and to avoid mingling with crowds or demonstrations of any kind.

Recall that the official website of the British government has issued a statement from the Foreign Office, the British Foreign Office, about terrorist threats to the Kingdom. The ministry reminds British citizens that two Scandinavian tourists were murdered in the Imlil region, but said the four perpetrators have been arrested.

The Forgein Office also reports that the Moroccan authorities are regularly dismantling several terrorist cells throughout the country. He argues that the terrorist attacks can target foreigners and quotes as an example the Argana terrorist act in 2011 in Marrakech, which killed 17 people in Jamaâ El Fna Square. The Forgein Office does not discourage its nationals from visiting Morocco. The ministry recalls that security measures are increasingly reinforced in the Kingdom, and that a large number of British travel to Morocco each year.
