Recommendation against travel to all of Lebanon

As the crisis surrounding Syria intensifies, the Swedish Foreign Ministry has extended its recommendation against travel to Lebanon to include the entire country.

“Because of the heightened security situation and the risk of increased regional tensions, until further notice the Foreign Ministry recommends against not necessary travel to Lebanon,” the ministry’s Victoria Bell says to the TT news agency.

Previously the ministry recommended against travel to especially sensitive areas of Lebanon.
