New British warning on Bahrain
The British Foreign Office has issued a new warning about Bahrain. The ministry says that "we judge that there is a high threat from terrorism. You should review your security arrangements carefully. You should remain vigilant, particularly in public places". The FO said that on April 4, Bahrain "will host a Formula 1 Grand Prix, a high profile event attracting thousands of visitors. The Bahraini authorities have introduced enhanced traffic and security arrangements for the convenience and safety of those attending."
It reiterated however that "we are particularly concerned about potential threats to places where westerners might gather".
