WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama's top national security advisers held a meeting on Saturday to discuss "potential threats occurring in or emanating from the Arabian Peninsula," the White House said.

"This afternoon, National Security Advisor (Susan) Rice chaired a meeting with the Principals Committee to further review the situation and follow-up actions," the White House said in a statement, referring to the advisers group.

"The president has received frequent briefings over the last week on all aspects of the potential threat and our preparedness measures," it said.

Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel were among those who attended the meeting, the White House said.
