Security Message: Travel Warning Reminder

The U.S. Embassy in Iraq, noting the upcoming holidays in Iraq, to include Eid al-Adha, Islamic New Year, and Ashura, reminds all U.S. citizens of the inherent dangers of life in Iraq. Terrorists have chosen times around local holidays to set off bombs in crowded areas, including attacks in Baghdad in July and September of this year. The Travel Warning for Iraq can be found on the Department of State website, and we urge all U.S. citizens to read it.
