13 March 2011We have updated our travel advice for Bahrain. A Foreign Office spokesperson said:
"In light of recent developments, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has changed its travel advice to advise against all travel to the Kingdom of Bahrain and ask that British nationals in Bahrain remain at home until further notice.
We have done this in response to an intensification of protests and continuing unrest. We call on the authorities to avoid the use of excessive force and on all parties to exercise restraint".
