US embassy issues security advisory vs travel in southern Cebu

Philippines : The United States Embassy has warned American citizens against traveling to areas frequented by foreigners in southern Cebu, specifically around Dalaguete and Santander, including Sumilon Island.
In an advisory posted on the US Embassy in the Philippines’ website, the embassy said terrorist groups are planning to conduct kidnappings in those areas in Cebu.

“US citizens should avoid travel to these areas and are reminded to review personal security plans; remain aware of their surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news stations for updates. Be vigilant and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security,” it said.
