BRITAIN issued a global terror threat alert this morning as war got underway in the Gulf. “The risk of indiscriminate terrorist attacks in public places including tourist sites will be especially high during military action in Iraq,” the Foreign Office said. “You should be vigilant, take sensible precautions, be aware of local sensibilities, monitor the media and check our travel advice for the country you live in or plan to visit,” it added in a statement. The blanket travel warning issued on Wednesday follows a series of similar, country-specific alerts issued by the Foreign Office as war with Iraq got underway. After issuing a broad warning about Bahrain and Jordan on Tuesday, the Foreign Office on Wednesday upgraded the status of its alert to Britons in Amman, telling them to leave while they still could.
