US issues high alert against ISIS attacks in South Africa

  • The United States mission to South Africa issued a potential warning against ISIS attack on US citizens in South Africa. This warning comes in the backdrop of Islamic State’s call for its adherents to carry out attacks globally during the upcoming month of Ramadan, according to the Mission. A similar alert was issued in September last year by US stating that the extremist might target US’ interests in the country. However, Security Minister David Mahlobo assured that there is no need to panic and there is no imminent threat from the Islamic State.
