COPENHAGEN, Denmark – The Danish Foreign Ministry is telling its citizens to avoid all non-essential travel to Tunisia, saying there is "a high terror risk."
The ministry on Friday didn't elaborate but Danes traditionally follow Britain when it comes to travel advisories. A day earlier, Britain had urged its citizens to leave Tunisia, saying an extremist attack was "highly likely" despite Tunisia's enhanced security measures.
On June 26, a gunman killed 38 tourists, mostly Britons, in the coastal resort of Sousse. Following that, Danish tour operators immediately stopped flying to the popular destination for Europeans.
Finland's Foreign Ministry also says Friday "there's a possibility of terror acts" in Tunisia but doesn't specifically tell travelers not to go. However, it adds Tunisian "authorities are not capable of sufficiently guaranteeing security at the tourist resorts."
