Latest update : 2010-05-01

The US embassy in New Delhi, India, warned Saturday of possible "imminent" attacks in the capital. They recommended a "high level of vigilance" for visitors and residents alike.

AFP - The US embassy in India warned Saturday of possible "imminent" militant attacks in New Delhi as it heightened the threat security awareness level for its citizens in the capital.
  
"There are increased indications that terrorists are planning imminent attacks in New Delhi," the US embassy said in a statement on its website, urging tourists to avoid half-a-dozen of the city's popular shopping areas.
  
The advisory marked an increase in the threat awareness level for US residents and visitors to the Indian capital. Earlier in April the embassy had said there were "increased indications that terrorists are planning attacks in New Delhi."
  
"Americans traveling or residing in India are strongly encouraged to maintain a high level of vigilance," the embassy said in its notice.
  
The latest US alert updated long-standing general advice for visitors to India that they should exercise caution and underlined security risks in the city as it gears up to host the Commonwealth Games in October.
