Saudi Threats Renewed

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates-- The U.S. Embassy in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday warned Americans in the kingdom to raise their guard against further attacks following fresh threats by a leading Islamic dissident.

Security alerts have been a frequent feature of daily life for the 35,000-strong American community in Saudi Arabia since five U.S. military advisers and two Indians were killed by a car bomb in the capital Riyadh 15 months ago.

The embassy noted with deep concern an interview on British television last Thursday "with well-known terrorist Osama Bin Laden in which he not only threatened again the U.S. military in Saudi Arabia but also called for the expulsion of American civilians."
