UK travelers warned of possible Christmas attacks in Indonesia
font size    

The British government on Wednesday issued a warning for its citizens against traveling to Indonesia over the coming Christmas and the New Year period because there is a "heightened risk of attacks".

The Foreign Office said in a statement there remains a high threat from terrorism in Indonesia and attacks could occur "at any time, anywhere in Indonesia" and could be directed against locations frequented by foreigners.

"We continue to receive reports that terrorists in Indonesia are planning further attacks. We believe that there is a heightened risk of attacks in the lead up to and during this Christmas and New Year period."

Terrorists have shown in previous attacks, like the attack on the Australian Embassy and the Bali bombings that they have the means and the motivation to carry out successful attacks, the statement added.

The warning of British Foreign Office came after the Australian government said earlier Wednesday that it had received specific intelligence suggesting an imminent terrorist attack in Indonesia.
