US issues security alert on Iraq amid regional tensions

The advisory warning comes at a time of rising tensions between the United States and Iran.

The US Embassy in Iraq has issued a security alert, warning US citizens of “heightened tensions” in Iraq and advising against travel there.

The advisory warning was posted on Twitter on Sunday night. It comes at a time of rising tensions in the Middle East between the United States and Iran.

The warning follows a surprise visit to Baghdad by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo which he said was aimed at demonstrating US support for the Iraqi government, as the US says it has been picking up intelligence that Iran is threatening American interests in the Middle East.

During his visit, Pompeo also said he wanted to underscore Iraq’s need to protect Americans in the country.
