Security Alert: Sweden, Reminder to Remain Vigilant During the Holidays

Location: Sweden

Event: Reminder to Remain Vigilant

We urge all U.S. citizens to remain cautious and to maintain situational awareness when attending large outdoor gatherings such as Christmas markets. Although the atmosphere at these events is festive, they also present a potential target for criminal or terrorist attacks.

Actions to Take:

·                  Have a contingency plan for emergencies and review the Traveler’s Checklist.

·                  Maintain a low profile.

·                  Report any suspicious activities or security incidents to local police.

·                  Follow the instructions of local authorities, especially in an emergency.

·                  Monitor media and local event information sources and factor updated information into your travel plans and activities.

For Assistance: The U.S. Embassy is continually monitoring the current situation in Sweden, and we continue to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens.
