Bored at work, so thought I'd investigate:peripheral said:so is iraq, apparently. wonder what the FO travel advice is?
Omaar said:Bored at work, so thought I'd investigate:
We strongly advise against all travel to Baghdad and the surrounding area, the provinces of Basra Maysan, Al Anbar, Salah Ad Din, Diyala, Wasit, Babil and Ninawa. We advise against all but essential travel to the rest of Iraq.
If you consider your presence in Iraq is essential you should have adequate and continuous professional close security arrangements and ensure they are regularly reviewed.
There is a high threat of kidnapping across Iraq. Including in the cities of Baghdad, Basra, Fallujah, Al Ramadi, the towns of Najaf and Kufa and on the Baghdad-Amman highway. Individuals have been kidnapped at their residence, work and in transit. Kidnappers do not discriminate between nationalities or religions. Since April 2006, over 100 people have been kidnapped. Those kidnapped include individuals who had security arrangements in place and some of those kidnapped have been killed. .... You should only consider visiting other areas of Iraq if you have strong commercial or professional reasons to do so.
The 'commercial reasons' bit almost sounds like a tacit endorsement of war profiteering
