The U.S. Embassy in Cairo has issued a warning for American female missionaries in Egypt, saying they could be targets for terrorists.

"The Embassy has credible information suggesting terrorist interest in targeting U.S. female missionaries in Egypt," a message posted on the embassy's website stated.

The embassy advised all U.S. citizens in Egypt to maintain valid travel documents and to "exercise vigilance, taking necessary precautions to maintain their personal security."

It comes after another travel warning in August warned Americans to “take precautions in travel to the Sinai," particularly "strongly discouraging" overland travel from Israel to the Sinai.

Protesters breached the U.S. Embassy in Cairo earlier this month, shortly before terrorists targeted the U.S. Consulate in Libya, killing Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

On Friday, the House of Representatives blocked the Obama administration's plan to send $450 million to Egypt.
