State Department Renews Warning Against Saudi Travel

The State Department is repeating its December third travel warning that recommends that Americans avoid non-essential travel to Saudi Arabia.

The new warning cites "credible information" that terrorists are targeting residential compounds especially in the Riyadh area. It also cautions that terrorists could be targeting civil aviation facilities in the country.

Today in Saudi Arabia, security forces killed one of the country's most wanted terrorist suspects and a second militant at a Riyadh gas station.
