The United States has raised a level of travel warning on Friday, for Sri Lanka and has urged its citizens to “reconsider” visiting the island nation in a wake of devastating series of suicide bombing attacks that took place last week that claimed the lives of more than 300 people.

According to ANI news reports, in an official statement, the US department of state stated it has “ordered the departure of all school-age family members of US government employees in kindergarten through 12th grade”, adding it has also authorized non-emergency personnel to leave.

The statement read terrorist organizations may continue the possible attack in Sri Lanka, with little or no warning, targeting public transportation, location, markets, hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, clubs, government facilities, sports and cultural event, places of worship, educational institutions, hospitals, airports and other public areas.

It added, “Be aware of your surroundings when travelling to tourist locations and crowded public venues, follow the instructions of local authorities, and monitor local media for breaking events and adjust your plans based on new information.”

The US travel advisory comes shortly after eight consecutive explosions in hotels and churches on Easter Sunday, that has rattled Sri Lanka’s cities of Batticaloa, Kochchikede, Negombo and Colombo.
