Warning Closes Part of U.S. Embassy

From Times Wire Reports

The U.S. Embassy in Berlin closed its consular section after city police tightened security because of a warning of a possible terrorist attack against American and Israeli targets, a spokeswoman said.

In Washington, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said the U.S. Defense Liaison Office in Bonn had also been closed to the public.

Police said they had "general information about a concrete attack" from unidentified foreign intelligence services.
