Australia issues travel warning for Germany, France

10 May, 2007

Australia has warned its citizens travelling to Germany to exercise caution in view of an increased risk of a terrorist attack.

The warning came after Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade reviewed its travel advice for Germany.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade German has said on its website that “public statements continue to note the possibility of terrorist attacks in Germany.”

It adds: “The German Interior Ministry has said the threat has become more serious.

On April 20, 2007, the United States Embassy issued a warden message advising that US diplomatic missions and installations are increasing security in response to the heightened terrorist threat.”

Australia has also warned travellers to France to be careful following the French presidential election in which conservative Nicolas Sarkozy won.

Sporadic violence occurred in a number of French cities after Sarkozy received 53.1% of the presidential vote as against 46.9% for Socialist candidate Segolene Royal. The leftists in France fear that Sarkozy would prove a divisive, dangerous and abrasive leader.

Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has asked Australians travelling to France to avoid protests, demonstrations, political rallies and large public celebrations as they may turn violent.
