US travelers were warned to travel after the killing of Al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri. They were at the risk of facing violence from Al Qaida.
Zawahiri’s death occurred in a drone strike in Kabul over the weekend. It causes the biggest blow to Al Qaeda since the killing of Osama bin Laden in 2011. US President Joe Biden declared that “justice had been delivered.”
Following the strike, the State Department Tuesday warned US citizens to “maintain a high level of vigilance and practice good situational awareness when traveling abroad.”
“Current information suggests that terrorist organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks against US interests in multiple regions across the globe,” the department said in a statement.
