(WASHINGTON) -- Following the disruption of an alleged Iranian-linked plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the U.S., the State Department has issued a travel alert, warning about the possibility of "anti-U.S. actions."
"The U.S. government assesses that this Iranian-backed plan to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador may indicate a more aggressive focus by the Iranian Government on terrorist activity against diplomats from certain countries, to include possible attacks in the United States," the department said.
The warning was released Tuesday, the same day news surfaced that FBI and DEA agents reportedly foiled the plot to kill Adel Al-Jubeir. Officials say bomb attacks on the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington, D.C., as well as bombings of the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Buenos Aires, Argentina, were also discussed.
