FCO issues Nigeria travel warning following explosions



The Foreign Office is warning against all but essential travel to the city of Kano in northern Nigeria after more than 100 people were killed in a series of terrorist attacks against police and government buildings.


It said British nationals in the city should remain vigilant and exercise caution following the attacks last Friday by Islamist group Boko Haram.


"A number of curfews are being enforced across Nigeria. British nationals are urged to comply with all curfews," said an FCO spokesman.


Travellers have been advised to keep monitoring the FCO"s travel advice on Nigeria.


Foreign secretary William Hague condemned the attacks and said: "The nature of these attacks has sickened people around the world and I send my deepest condolences and sympathies to the families of those killed and to those injured."
