KUALA LUMPUR: The Foreign Ministry has advised Malaysians to avoid travelling to areas where a series of bomb explosions have occurred in southern Thailand.
The ministry, in a statement late Monday, said Malaysians should consider temporarily postponing any non-essential visit to southern Thailand for personal safety and security reasons.
“Malaysians who are already in southern Thailand are advised to closely monitor the situation and follow instructions issued by the authorities of Thailand,” it said.
