serioussecurity threat to Americans and other westerners in Indonesia. The

additionalattacks against westerners in Indonesia. Specifically, the police

Police also found a videotaped threat from a hooded terrorist who threatened specific attacks against Americans, Australians, British and Italians. The Embassy and against Americans, Australians, British and Italians. The Embassy and the Indonesian Government take these threats very seriously.
