FCO releases Bahrain travel advice

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has advised British travellers to ‘avoid all but essential travel’ to Bahrain following violent protests in its capital. Although flights continue to operate to the Middle Eastern country, concerns have been raised after it was reported that two people have died in the demonstrations. “We have conveyed our concern about these events and the level of violence to the Government of Bahrain.” said Foreign Secretary William Hague. “We are advising all British nationals to stay away from protests and to avoid all but essential travel around Bahrain. The airport in Manama continues to function normally, but we will of course keep this situation under review and ensure that British nationals in Bahrain receive full consular support.”
