The United States has asked its citizens to be alert and cautious about their security during the upcoming Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in October, but said it had no specific information on any terrorist threat.

'The US government has no information on any specific threat of attack that any individual or group is planning to coincide with the Games,' the State Department said in its latest India-travel alert.

'In the event the US government receives information of any specific threat, the Department of State would provide information on that threat to the public immediately. US citizens planning on travelling to India during the Commonwealth Games should carefully read the State Department's country specific information for India and check www.travel.state.gov for up-to-date travel alerts or travel warnings on safety and security issues,' it said.

'All US citizens in or traveling to India are urged to enroll with the US mission in India to receive these alerts as quickly as possible,' the State Department said.

The US mission in India alerts US citizens travelling to or residing in India to safety and security issues related to the 2010 Commonwealth Games scheduled to be held in New Delhi, India, between October 3 and October 14, 2010, especially in light of the worldwide caution issued by the Department of State on August 12, 2010, regarding the

continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against US citizens and interests throughout the world, it said.

This travel alert expires November 15, 2010, the State Department said.
