The United States Consulate General Guangzhou posted the following:
Terrorist Threat for Americans in Guangzhou
The United States Government has received credible information that a terrorist threat may exist against official U.S. Government facilities in
Guangzhou. This threat also may exist for places where Americans are known to congregate or visit, including clubs, restaurants, places of worship,
schools or outdoor recreation events.
American citizens in south China are advised to be aware of their surroundings and remain alert to possible threats. Americans living or traveling in
China are encouraged to register with the U.S. Consulate General in Guangzhou through the State Department’s travel registration website, https://travelregistration.state.gov/ . By registering, American citizens make it easier for the Consulate to contact them in case of emergency.
U.S. citizens planning to travel to China should consult the Department of State’s country-specific Public Announcements, Travel Warnings, Consular Information Sheets, the Worldwide Caution Public Announcement and other information, available at http://travel.state.gov/. Up-to-date information on security conditions can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 in the U.S. and for callers outside the U.S. and Canada a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444.
