India Terror Warning

Today, US Embassy in India warned of possible terror threats both in Delhi and Mumbai. The US consulate in Mumbai has been closed.

Stratfor analyzes this action thus:

The U.S. Embassy in India issued a statement saying the U.S. Consulate General in Mumbai would be closed Nov. 23 after threats of possible attacks. The warning lacked specifics, and considering that most militant activity in India has been away from centers of U.S. interests, the closure and warning are likely a precautionary, proactive measure.

This is likely related to the arrival of Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz in Delhi -- a "good" time to draw attention from a terrorist point of view.
