Avoid Sri Lanka, France warns citizens

[TamilNet, Friday, 01 December 2006, 00:15 GMT]
France has warned its nationals against making non-essential visits to Sri Lanka because of an increase in violence and suicide attacks, Reuters reported. In an advisory published on its Web site, on Thursday the Foreign Ministry strongly advised French visitors to avoid the north and east of the island and warned against non-urgent travel in the rest of the country.

"Given the resumption in violence and suicide attacks ... (travellers are) advised for the moment to reconsider all non-essential travel to Sri Lanka," the ministry said.
