al-Qa'ida in West Africa

From HotSpots:

Senegal (Security threat level - 3): On 24 May 2011 the U.S. Embassy in Dakar released a Warden Message, which reads in part as follows: "As of May 2011, it was reported that terrorist organizations in West Africa affiliated with al-Qa’ida, will seek to capture or kill U.S. citizens in the region, possibly from locations frequented by Westerners, including markets, shops, hotels and restaurants, in revenge for the death of Usama bin Laden. We advise U.S. citizens traveling in the region to exercise caution, to maintain a low profile, and to avoid areas frequented by foreigners or tourists."

Now isn't that just "peachy?"

Pray for our missionaries scattered all over West Africa.
