German Ministry Cautions Turkey Travelers

The German Foreign Ministry has warned German holidaymakers heading to Turkey to be extra careful following two bomb blasts in the popular southern tourist resort city of Antalya on Tuesday which wounded at least nine people including a French tourist. "There are frequent clashes between the terrorist outfit PKK and Turkish security forces in eastern and southeastern Turkey," the foreign ministry said in a statement, pointing out that there had been several blasts in the region in the past. The ministry added that though security had been increased in Turkey, the possibility of further attacks on tourist spots could not be ruled out. Last month a terrorist attack in the seaside town of Kusadasi killed five people including a British national.
