NEW YORK – Japan’s Foreign Ministry on Thursday warned Japanese citizens planning to visit Indonesia of potential terror threats during a three- day Easter holiday beginning Friday, the Kyodo news agency reports.
The ministry advised Japanese visitors to Indonesia to stay away from crowded places such as shopping malls and hotels frequented by Westerners which could become targets of terrorism, Kyodo said.
The move came after the U.S. Embassy in Indonesia issued a similar terror warning. The U.S. Embassy issued the warning after a group of suspected terrorists recently arrested in the Philippines included those with ties to Indonesia.
