Question: Have U.S Embassies changed their security posture in light of the reported bombings on the Swiss, Chilean and Ukrainian Embassies in Rome?
Answer: We have notified all U.S. Embassies worldwide to review current mail screening procedures and to continue vigilance when opening mail.
In Rome, we are monitoring the situation with local law enforcement. We have alerted all U.S. Embassy Rome personnel that if they receive anything suspicious, either at the Embassy or at their residences, to inform the Regional Security Officer immediately.
