The U.S. on Thursday issued a security alert warning of “potential attacks” in three major cities in Myanmar.

“Increase your security awareness, especially while interacting with security forces and at government facilities,” the U.S. Embassy in Myanmar advised its citizens in a statement posted on its website.

“Myanmar security forces are investigating reports of potential attacks in Nay Pyi Taw on September 26, October 16, and October 26, and in Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon, and Mandalay in the coming months,” the U.S. alert added.

The alert asked citizens to continuously monitor local media for updates.
