Western governments warning its citizens against travel to Philippines

Western governments are warning its citizens against traveling to Philippines, especially all Mindanao, citing the rising threats of terror attacks and kidnappings by Islamist militants.

Recent advise, released on Tuesday, warned terrorists were “very likely” to carry out attacks anywhere in the Philippines, including Manila. It said the most acute threat was in the south and warned against traveling through nearly all of the southern regions of the country.

The advisory said the threat of kidnappings and terrorism also loomed over Dumaguete City and nearby Siquijor island, both popular tourist destinations.
