US Embassy warns of possible Guyana threat

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) -- The U.S. Embassy in Guyana says it has received "unconfirmed threat information" relating to a regional airline's flights departing Monday from the South American country and destined for the United States.
The embassy is advising all U.S. citizens in Guyana to make alternate travel arrangements through Wednesday if they are planning on traveling home on flights with Caribbean Airlines.
The terse security message was posted Sunday on the embassy's website.
A representative of Caribbean Airlines says the airline has increased its security measures.
In 2007, a former member of Guyana's parliament and a naturalized U.S. citizen from Guyana were among four people convicted of participating in a plot by a small group of militant Muslims to firebomb John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
