FCO issues warning to travellers heading to India

Travellers heading to India are being told by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to be ‘more vigilant’ after a bomb explosion in Delhi this morning.

The explosion, outside the Indian High Court in the capital, has killed 11 people and injured at least 61.

The FCO have issued a travel warning advising all British nationals to monitor local media and be more vigilant around government buildings and public places.

The FCO continues, saying: “There is a high threat from terrorism throughout India. Recent attacks have targeted public places including those visited by foreigners. Following explosions in Mumbai on 13 July, major cities in India remain on high alert and British nationals should exercise caution.”

Both Delhi and Mumbai are now on high alert due to the explosion.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh called it a “cowardly act of a terrorist nature”.

For more information go to the FCO website.
