10月1日 在マニラ アメリカ大使館から「緊急メッセージ」

マニラのアメリカ大使館から警告が発せられています。

「マニラ首都圏の米国市民に対する脅威に関する情報が、さる信用できる筋からはいっている。」とのことです。

マニラに5年住んでいますが、米国大使館が「緊急メッセージ」を出すのは初めてだと思います。

「特にパサイ市近隣において」
「期間は10月10日まで」

とのこと。
パサイ市というと、PICC、ワールドトレードセンターなどのコンベンションセンター。モール・オブ・エイジアなどの巨大ショッピングモール。それからニノイ・アキノ国際空港などなどあります。

情報の詳細は明かされていませんが「日常のルーティンのすべてに注意すること」「目立たないようにすること」「アメリカ人の集まり、催しなどは可能なら中止すること」など、テロ対策かと思われるアドバイスが出ています。

米国の情報機関が「ムハマンド侮辱映画」への報復テロの具体的な情報でも掴んだんでしょうか。



テロとなると、たとえ米国がターゲットであったとしても巻き込まれてしまえば同じことです。特に用事のない方はパサイ市の人の集まる場所には行かないのが無難かと思われます。特に米国人の多いイベントだとか、米国の都市→成田→マニラのような航空路線などは要注意ではないでしょうか。


以下、米国大使館からの緊急メッセージを添付します。

EMERGENCY MESSAGE TO U.S. CITIZENS
September 28, 2012
THE EMBASSY OF THE UNITED STATES IS TRANSMITTING THE FOLLOWING
INFORMATION AS A PUBLIC SERVICE TO U.S. CITIZENS IN THE
PHILIPPINES. PLEASE DISSEMINATE THIS MESSAGE TO ALL U.S.
CITIZENS IN YOUR ORGANIZATION OR NEIGHBORHOOD. THANK YOU.

Threat Against American Citizens in Manila
The U.S. Embassy advises American citizens in the Philippines
that a threat against American citizens in metropolitan Manila,
specifically the Pasay City neighborhood, has been detected by
reliable security forces. This threat remains in effect until
October 10, 2012.
In response to the threat, the U.S. Ambassador has ordered an
augmented security profile for all U.S. government facilities in
Manila.
The Embassy urges American citizens at this time to:
1.) Exercise extreme caution in their daily routine and to
maintain extra awareness regarding their own security;
2.) As much as possible, maintain a low profile;
3.) Vary travel routes and social routines;
4.) Consider cancelling any American gatherings,
celebrations or observations that could be construed as
American events;
5.) Report any perceived security concern to Philippine
authorities. The U.S. Embassy also wishes to remind U.S. citizens of the
continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against U.S.
citizens and interests throughout the world. In a message dated
July 12, 2012, the Department of State recommends Worldwide
Caution and reminds U.S. citizens that terrorism can occur
anywhere.
The Embassy reminds U.S. citizens of the dangers sometimes
associated with public demonstrations. Even demonstrations that
are meant to be peaceful can suddenly become violent and
unpredictable. Americans should be alert, pay attention to
local news media, and avoid demonstration areas if at all
possible. The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority often
provides a map of affected locations at their website,
www.mmda.gov.ph/192012-rerouting.html.
We encourage all U.S. citizens in the Philippines to enroll with
the Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program or
at the U.S. Embassy in Manila. By enrolling, you can receive
the Embassy's most recent security and safety updates during
your trip. Enrolling also ensures that we can reach you, or
your designated emergency points of contact, during an
emergency. The U.S. Embassy is located at: 1201 Roxas
Boulevard, Manila, Philippines, tel. 63-2-301-2000. The
American Citizens Services (ACS) section's fax number is 63-2-
301-2017, and you may reach the ACS Section by email
at ACSinfoManila@state.gov. The ACS Section's website includes
consular information and the most recent messages to the U.S.
citizen community in the Philippines.
U.S. citizens traveling in the region are encouraged to stay up
to date on conditions across the globe by bookmarking the Bureau of Consular Affairs website, which contains the current Travel
Warnings (including the Travel Warning for the Philippines,
dated June 14, 2012) and Travel Alerts as well as the Worldwide
Caution of July 12, 2012. Follow us on Twitter and become a fan
