British govt. urges UK nationals to leave Somalia

PanARMENIAN.Net - The British government says it believes terrorists are in the final stages of planning attacks in Somalia and urged UK nationals to leave the country, The Associated Press reported.

The Foreign Office already advises against all travel to Somalia, including Somaliland, where it says there is a specific threat to Westerners. It said Saturday, April 6, it had revised its travel advice to reflect concerns that terrorists are in the final stages of plotting attacks in Mogadishu, the Somali capital.

Britain has no diplomatic representation in Somalia and is unable to provide consular assistance in the country.
