U.S. Embassy Warns Americans Visiting Australia To 'Remain Vigilant' Amid Recent Terrorist Attacks

The US embassy in Australia has done so issued a message for citizens visiting Australia following the two recent terrorist attacks in the country.

In a “religiously motivated extremist” act, a 16-year-old boy stabbed Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel and a priest during a livestream service at Christ The Good Shepherd Church in Wakeley on April 16. said NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb.

Just two days before this alleged “terrorist act”, six people were murdered by Joel Cauchi, 40, with a “large knife” in Bondi Junction’s Westfield shopping center on April 13, sending Australia into mourning.

The attacker, who was shot dead by a female police officer, also managed to wound 12 other people, including a nine-month-old girl whose mother could not survive, New South Wales Health Minister Ryan Park said.

Authorities have not linked these killers to a terrorist attack, but have stated so Cauchi was specific aimed at women.

The only man killed in the attack was security guard Faraz Tahir, 30, who was trying to protect women from death.

The US Embassy and Consulates in Australia have a “message‘ for Americans who advise them on the importance of remain vigilant at all times, even in places where you would normally feel safe.

When in Australia, be especially careful if you are surrounded by crowds in public or tourist locations, make sure you have a security plan ready and leave areas of increased police activity.
