The United States issued a worldwide travel alert, warning Americans to be vigilant during the holiday period, especially in the wake of a deadly siege in Australia.

Sydney this week saw a dramatic siege in a cafe and left two hostages and a gunman dead. "

The agency said an analysis of past attacks "strongly suggests" terrorists this holiday season are focusing not only on US government facilities but also on hotels, shopping areas, places of worship and schools.

The alert said US citizens abroad should be mindful that terrorist groups and those inspired by them can pose unpredictable threats in public venues.
