U.S. Embassy in New Delhi Warns of Possible Al Qaeda Terror Attacks in India

The U.S. Embassy in India's capital warned Friday that foreign militants, possibly Al Qaeda members, may be planning to carry out bombings in two major Indian cities in the coming days.

In an e-mail sent to American citizens living in India, the Embassy said New Delhi, the capital, and Bombay, the country's financial and entertainment hub, were the targets of the alleged plot, and that the attacks were believed to be planned around India's Independence Day, which falls on Aug. 15.

The Embassy confirmed that it had sent the e-mail, although Indian officials refused to comment on the warning.

Attacks are ALWAYS likely in India. if any of these idiots bothered paying attention to world news, they would know that India is always having problems with threats from fanatical Muslim bombers. Hell, a couple weeks ago they blew up a train there.

More panic mongering really. They are taking something that is pretty common knowldge for those who know anything about India, and making it out to be some new dire threat.

Business as usual.

There's a threat of a possible attack on August what's wrong with giving a heads up to expats living in or around Mumbai and New Delhi? It's just a notice saying hey, there's a good chance that some #e might go on 15 Aug stay away from the Embassy and Consulate.

Whenever an American visits a country it's always good to register with the Embassy or Consulate, so just in case something bad is likely to won't be up poop creek w/o a paddle.

And they don't blast out emails for every threat that comes across the desk...only the ones that have have allot of weight to them.

There's a difference between "panic mongering" and good 'ole situational awareness....

also considering passions are running very high in regards to the current situation in the UK, I would think giving a heads up to Americans in India (which shares a border with Pakistan) is probably a good idea.

IMO of course.
