Pakistan on red alert for possible terror attack: Officials

Washington, Aug. 5 (ANI): Islamabad is on red alert after officials received an intelligence intercept of a likely attack on a high-value target, two senior Pakistani officials have said.

According to CNN, they said that important military installations were under tight security.

A recently intercepted message among senior al Qaeda operatives raised alarm that led to the closing of 22 embassies and consulates on August 4 across the Middle East and North Africa.

The officials said that among the buildings being guarded are the headquarters for Pakistan's air force and navy, the report added. (ANI)
