US warns over security threat at Baghdad airport

(Reuters) – The US embassy in Iraq has cautioned American citizens against travelling through Baghdad airport on Tuesday due to a “specific threat” to security.

The statement said embassy personnel were prohibited from using Baghdad international airport “at this time”, and urged US citizens across Iraq to remain on alert. No further details were given.

“US citizens are advised to keep a low profile; vary days, times, and routes of travel; and exercise caution while driving and entering or exiting vehicles,” read the statement on the embassy’s website.
