Ottawa: Ahead of the King Charles III coronation, Canada has updated its travel advisory. Ottawa is advising Canadians to exercise a ‘high degree’ during their visit to the United Kingdom.
The Global Affairs Canada says large crowds are expected in London in the days before and after the event, including in the area of the High Commission of Canada.
In its advisory, Global Affairs Canada asked Canadians to plan trip carefully, book accommodation in advance, expect delays and follow the advice of the local government.
“There is a threat of terrorism in Europe. Terrorists have carried out attacks in several European cities. In the United Kingdom, previous incidents have resulted in casualties. They include random violent incidents in public areas, such as knife and vehicle attacks as well as explosions,” the advisory reads.
According to the Global Affairs Canada, these incidents have occurred mainly in the London area but have also happened elsewhere.
“Further attacks in the United Kingdom are likely,” the Canadian government said in a statement.
