Ghana: High alert after Ivory Coast terror attack

Ghana’s government has put the nation on high alert in the wake of Sunday’s deadly terror attack in neighboring Ivory Coast.

Ghana’s national security chiefs say they have intelligence of a credible terrorist threat in the country.

They made the announcement Wednesday following a meeting with Ghana’s President John Mahama to review their readiness. In a statement, the government called on Ghanaians to pay attention and report anything unusual to security agencies.

The terror alert is a first for the West African country.
Since November, al-Qaida militants have attacked hotels in two other regional capitals, Bamako and Ouagadougou, and a beach resort outside Abidjan.
