It urged American citizens in the Philippines to keep a low profile, be aware of their surroundings, stay alert in places frequented by tourists, review personal security plans, and have updated travel documents which are also easily accessible.
“The Embassy will continue to review the security situation and will provide additional information as needed,” it added.

Iran has vowed to avenge Soleimani’s death while US President Donald Trump warned of “major retaliation” if Tehran makes good on its threat.
