The U.S. Embassy in Kuwait said Wednesday an attack was possibly being planned against it, and a note found on a plane warned of a bomb attack on the U.S. mission in the Philippines.

A message on the embassy's telephone line for U.S. citizens in Kuwait said: "The U.S. government has received information indicating that a similar attack may be being planned in Kuwait."The message said the embassy was taking "appropriate security precautions."

A handwritten note threatening the U.S. Embassy in Manila, Philippines, was found Tuesday in the toilet of a plane. Interior Ministry spokesman Col. Bader Saleh quoted the note as saying in English: "The American Embassy in the Philippines will be bombed on Sept. 4, 1998."
