Britain relaxes travel advisory

Britain has removed the warning from its travel advice to British nationals visiting Sri Lanka following a reassessment of the threat.

The Foreign Office warned people against all but essential travel to Sri Lanka. It now contains specific warnings about travel to the country - saying terrorists are likely to try to carry out attacks, including in places foreigners visit.

It also says outbreaks of mob violence, such as those that followed the Easter attacks, could happen again with little or no warning.

The statement further adds, those travelling to keep up to date with developments and remain vigilant.

“Take sensible precautions, familiarise yourself with security procedures at your hotel or accommodation and follow the advice of local authorities and hotel security staff. Avoid crowded places, large gatherings and any demonstrations,” he said. (BBC)
