The Australian government in its latest travel advisory issued today adviced its citizen travelling to Sri Lanka to exercise a high degree of caution in Sri Lankan at this time because of the unrest situation in some part of the country.

The updated travel advisory

This Advice was last issued on Monday, 16 June 2014.   This advice contains new information under Safety and Security: Civil unrest/political tensions (a night curfew has been imposed in Aluthgama and Beruwala following civil unrest. You should respect the curfew and follow the instructions of local authorities. Avoid any protests or large public gatherings in these areas as they may turn violent). We advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in Sri Lanka at this time because of the unpredictable security environment.

    Why is it bullshit. If there was tension and rioting in parts of australia isn't it the GOSLs responsibility to advise Srilankan travellers to be cautious??
