During recent times we have been able to see how the terrorism Jihadist has hit hard the tourist center of countries in Europe, Asia and North Africa. Their objective is clear: spread the panic, demonstrate their strength and show that the countries they consider enemies are vulnerable. The problem is that, massacre after massacre, they are succeeding. In fact, many people take terrorism into account when planning vacations.
To make it easier for all tourists who put security before anything else, The Independent newspaper has published a Map prepared by the company CartoDB in which, based on the recommendations of the British Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it shows the countries that are insecure throughout the territory (in red), those that are insecure in some parts (in orange) and those that are safe (in green). What we want to do today is tell you about all those countries that it is better to avoid during the holidays. Can you come with us?
The map advises against trips to Tunisia, which has suffered several attacks terrorists. One of the most serious events took place in June 2015, when a terrorist killed 39 people in two coastal hotels.
They also do not recommend traveling to Libya, a country that is seriously affected by violence, terrorism and deteriorating security. In fact, there have been armed robberies and murders of foreigners.
Another country that is better to avoid according to this map is Mauritania, which lives under the threat terrorist.
Due to ongoing military intervention and the fragile political and security situation, travel to Mali is also discouraged. In fact, there is a high risk of kidnapping and terrorist threats across the country.
Another country that appears in red on the map is Burkina Faso, which crosses a volatile security situation.
We are still in Africa to tell you about the Republic of Niger, which is affected by the same conditions of insecurity as the rest of the Sahel countries.
Traveling to Chad is also discouraged, where there is a very serious risk of kidnappings occurring across the country.
Central African Republic
On the other hand, the political transition that the Central African Republic has experienced during the last three years has been marked by a high level of violence and a great humanitarian crisis.
Another African country on the list is the Republic of South Sudan. In fact, the entire territory is considered a high risk area, especially since the beginning of the civil conflict in December 2014.
Somalia also appears in red, among other things because in this country there is a high risk of it occurring kidnappings throughout the territory.
Travel to Burundi, where acts of extreme violence have occurred in certain areas, is also discouraged.
Already in Asia they recommend us not to travel to Syria, which, as you well know, is in a situation of armed conflict.
Iraq is another of the countries of Asia that appears in red on the map, something that is not surprising if we consider that the territory is seriously deteriorated for terrorist activity and kidnappings.
We must also talk about Yemen, where in recent times there has been an escalation of violence and where armed confrontations and military attacks are taking place in wide areas of the country.
Finally, we have to talk about Afghanistan, a country where they can occur alterations of public order. Furthermore, there is a high risk of attacks and kidnappings.
