The United States Embassy in Kinshasa remained closed for a fourth day on Thursday, after the U.S. warned of a “possible terrorist threat’’ against its facilities in Congo.

“US citizens in Kinshasa and throughout the DRC are strongly encouraged to maintain a heightened level of vigilance and practise good situational awareness,” the embassy said.

It first closed on Monday, November 26th.

While multiple militia groups are fighting in Congo, along ethnic lines or over the country’s mineral wealth, foreign aid workers occasionally caught up in the conflict.

It is unusual that the US should come under a specific threat.

The embassy has given no further details on what the threat might entail or who they suspect of being behind it.

On Monday, after the embassy first closed and US warned nationals to keep a low profile, Congolese authorities described its reaction as “useless psychosis".
