U.S. Cairo Embassy Closes on Al-Qaeda Attack Threat - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

The US embassy in Cairo was closed on Saturday after Washington issued a worldwide travel alert on Friday warning Americans that al Qaeda may be planning attacks in August, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. The State Department travel alert was based on the same intelligence that prompted it to close 21 U.S. embassies and consulates on Sunday, Aug. 4, chiefly those in the Muslim world, a U.S. official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
