The United States has issued a worldwide travel alert for its citizens in response to “increased terrorist threats”.

According to BBC News, the state department said “current information” suggested the Islamic State group, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and others continued “to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions”.

The alert, it said, will remain in place until February 24th, 2016.

The alert does not instruct Americans to avoid travel, but it does urge US citizens to “exercise vigilance when in public places or using transportation.”
