Australians advised to exercise caution in Egypt
font size    

The Australian government on Tuesday advised its citizens to exercise a high degree of caution in Egypt in the wake of deadly attacks in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

Three explosions rocked Red Sea resort of Dahab in Sinai Peninsula on Monday evening, killing at least 30 and wounding more than 100.

The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade reviewed and reissued its travel advice to Egypt. It contains new information about the security situation in Egypt.

However, the overall level of the advice has not changed. It remained at "High degree of caution," which is the middle one among five levels.

"We advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in Egypt because of the high threat of terrorist attack. We continue to receive reports that terrorists are planning attacks against a range of targets, including places frequented by foreigners," DFAT said in the advisory.

Recent terrorist attacks in Egypt have targeted foreign tourists resulting in large numbers of deaths and further attacks can be expected, it said.

"The attacks (in Sinai) underline the ongoing terrorist threat to tourists," it said.

It said tourist areas and popular destinations such as Hurghada, Luxor, Aswan, Giza, Alexandria, Red Sea and Sinai resorts or elsewhere in Egypt are potential terrorist targets as are commercial and public areas known to be frequented by foreigners.

DFAT also reminded Australians that there have been human deaths from avian influenza in Egypt.
