Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Cnbc.com: “China warns its citizens against traveling to Sri Lanka after bombings”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

China on Tuesday warned its citizens not to travel to Sri Lanka after a series of explosions there on Easter Sunday killed nearly 300 people, including 32 foreigners.

A spate of bombings on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka killed 290 people and wounded more than 500 others on Sunday. The capital of Colombo is currently under curfew amid warnings of further attacks and fears of communal violence. There has been no claim of responsibility for the attacks, but the authorities have blamed local militants with links to foreign networks.

On Tuesday, the Chinese embassy warned its citizens in Sri Lanka to stay away "in the near term" from crowded areas and pay attention to safety reminders.

"If Chinese citizens insist on going (to Sri Lanka) after this warning is issued, they will bring enormous security risks to their parties and make it difficult for the embassy to provide effective assistance," the advisory said in Chinese.

The U.S. State Department on Sunday issued an advisory that Americans should "exercise increased caution" in Sri Lanka. "Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Sri Lanka," said the advisory, which cited tourist locations, markets, hotels, clubs and restaurants among possible targets.
