WASHINGTON --The nation's terror alert has been downgraded from orange to yellow. The Homeland Security Department has lowered the status signaling an ``elevated'' risk of attack.
The Bush administration had put the alert at orange ten days ago, after terror attacks in Saudi Arabia and Morocco. It had feared the attacks could signal a new wave of attacks on targets worldwide, including Americans.
