Travel Warnings Released For The U.S Following Riots

Following decades of issuing travel warnings to its citizens, America is now at the centre of its own misfortune.

Four countries, including two from the Middle East, have dispatched tourist warnings for the US as civil unrest is fuelled by two more fatal shootings of black men by police last week.

The United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and New Zealand have told travellers to steer clear of protests and large crowds because of the high potential for violence.

Another nation which issued a warning was the Bahama's, which was first to go, warned about the potentially fatal consequences of interacting with American police officers.

The statement from the Bahama's government said ''In particular young males are asked to exercise extreme caution in affected cities in their interactions with the police. Do not be confrontational and cooperate.''

It added ''If there is any issue please allow consular offices for the Bahamas to deal with the issues. Do not get involved in political or other demonstrations under any circumstances and avoid crowds.''

Bahrain advised it's citizens to ''be cautious of protests or crowded areas occurring around the US.''
