DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CNN) -- The U.S. Embassy in Saudi Arabia has advised Americans living in the kingdom to "exercise extreme caution" against possible terrorist attacks in the next seven to 10 days.

Several reasons were given, including elections in the United States, upcoming international conferences and the one-year anniversary of the terrorist bombing in Riyadh, which killed five Americans and two Indians on November 13, 1995.

Embassy officials say terrorist groups might use the events as an excuse to attack U.S. interests or facilities.
