SYDNEY, Australia — Australians have been given a specific warning to stay away from international hotels in Indonesia over the Christmas period for fear of a terrorist attack.
Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade gave the warning late Wednesday, saying it had intelligence that an attack was being planned.
“We have received credible new information suggesting terrorists are ready to carry out an attack shortly in Indonesia, possibly targeting a Hilton Hotel,” the department’s travel warning said.
“Other targets cannot be ruled out. In light of this information, Australians in Jakarta, and elsewhere in Indonesia, are advised to avoid all international hotels and other places where foreigners are known to gather.”
