South Korean Spy Agency Warns Nationals of Potential Terrorist Threats Abroad

SEOUL: The National Intelligence Service (NIS) of South Korea issued a cautionary statement on Monday for South Korean nationals traveling or residing overseas, alerting them to potential terrorist threats.

According to Yonhap News Agency, the advisory comes in the wake of recent violent incidents, including a deadly shooting at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and a stabbing attack on a tourist in Paris, both occurring in December. These cities, noted as popular destinations for South Korean tourists, have heightened the agency's concern. Additionally, the NIS referenced the abduction of two South Korean men in Nigeria on December 12, who were held for 17 days before their release late last month. This sequence of events has prompted the NIS to urge South Korean citizens abroad to exercise increased vigilance.
