Washington: The United States of America’s (USA) State Department has assessed Dhaka as a “high-threat” location for political violence, terrorist activities and crimes directed at or affecting Washington’s “official interests”, reports Daily Star.

The department, which deals with America’s global policies, made the assessment on Bangladesh in the 2017 Crime and Safety Report prepared and released by the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) on February 1.

On terrorism threats, the report says the State Department alerts US citizens to concerns about ongoing potential for extremist violence in Bangladesh. It urges the US citizens who travel to Bangladesh to exercise appropriate cautions and maintain a high level of vigilance in light of the recent violent attacks.
