1, The US Embassy issued a warning that western teachers could be targeted by extremists; no specific threat mentioned for Oman but for Saudi and Egypt.
October 29, 2014
The Embassy wishes to notify the American community of a recent anonymous posting on an extremist website which encouraged attacks against American and other western teachers in the Middle East. The website specifically referenced teachers at schools in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) and Maadi (Egypt) as examples of locations with high concentrations of potential targets. The Embassy is unaware of any specific, credible threat against any American or western school or individuals in Oman.
