Foreign Countries Issue Travel Warnings: Be Extremely Cautious of US

The United States has become a dangerous place to visit because of shooting massacres and violent demonstrations, according to the governments of three countries.

Reuters reported that on Saturday, officials at the U.S. embassy of Bahrain told the small nation’s residents to “be cautious of protests or crowded areas occurring around the U.S.”

The Bahamas issued a similar travel warning, citing “shootings of young black males by police officers” in the United States. “In particular, young males are asked to exercise extreme caution in affected cities in their interactions with the police,” the country’s foreign ministry wrote. “Do not be confrontational, and cooperate.”

The United Arab Emirates has advised its citizens, especially students, to “please be aware of immediate surroundings and avoid crowded places when possible.” UAE embassy officials wrote: “Exercise particular caution during large festivals or events. Be alert and stay safe.”

Reuters pointed out that U.S. authorities frequently warn Americans about the dangers of going to certain foreign countries. Since July 1, there have been travel warnings regarding Bangladesh, Venezuela, Iraq and Mali. Now, it is the United States that people are becoming afraid to visit.

Last week’s police shootings of African-American men in Minnesota and Louisiana, followed by the murders of five police officers in Dallas, have increased tourists’ concerns. Eleanor Fairbrother of Ireland told a reporter Sunday while visiting New York City: “I don’t like to be in crowded places anymore.”
