U.S. embassies in a slew of Muslim countries will close on Sunday due to a credible and serious security threat.

The embassies will close in response to “a specific threat against a U.S. embassy or consulate,” according to a senior U.S. official, who called it a “concerted effort” to target an embassy or consulate in a Muslim country.

“We just don’t know which one,” the official told ABC News.

“There could be other targets, not just embassies,” another U.S. official said. The threat is considered to be throughout the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.
