Warning Status: Qatar

The Gulf Times reported today that the British Embassy has warned of a serious threat of an attack in The UAE.

"There is a high threat from terrorism. We believe terrorists may be planning to carry out attacks in the UAE. Attacks could be indescriminate and could happen at any time, including in places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers such as residential compounds, military, oil, transport and aviation interests. You should maintain a high level of security awareness, particularly in public places."

After reading the story I spoke to the British Embassy earlier, and they said that the warning applied specifically to the UAE and not to Qatar. The status in Qatar remains the same, which is of a general warning:

"There remains a general threat from terrorism in Qatar. Attacks could be indiscriminate, and against Western, including British, interests as well as against civilian targets, including places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers."
