Australia’s government warned on Thursday that terrorists may be in the advanced stages of preparing attacks in Indonesia, and urged travelers to exercise a high level of caution when visiting the southeast Asian nation, including the popular tourist island of Bali.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade issued the travel advisory, which said only that there were “recent indications” an attack may be in the advanced planning stages, and warned people to be vigilant at places of worship and during holiday periods. The department did not raise its overall warning level for Australians visiting the country.
The advice comes just days after Australia warned that terrorists may be plotting attacks in and around Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s largest city.
In its warning for Indonesia, the department cited the Jan. 14 attacks in the capital, Jakarta, that left eight people dead, saying the assaults demonstrated an ongoing threat.
“We continue to receive information that indicates that terrorists may be planning attacks in Indonesia,” the department wrote. “An attack could occur anywhere at any time.”
