KUWAIT - The British embassy in Kuwait has temporarily suspended its operations due to an increased security threat, the embassy said in a statement.

"Whilst the threat is targeted against the Embassy itself, we cannot rule out threats against other British interests in Kuwait," the statement dated Wednesday, Oct. 19, and posted on the embassy website, said. "We therefore advise that British organizations and businesses in Kuwait review the security procedures they have in place," it added.
