The embassy on Wednesday urged Americans in the kingdom to “exercise prudence and enhanced security awareness at all times.” No further details of the possible plot were given.

Saudi Arabia has waged a heavy crackdown on militants since Al Qaeda’s Saudi branch launched a wave of attacks in the country in 2003, including suicide bombings and shootings that killed dozens of Saudis and foreigners. At least 11 Americans were among the dead.
