Traveler's Alert: Avoid Travel to Northern Mali

For our readers who travel to Sub-Saharan Africa, be advised that effective January 12, 2012, the British Foreign Office has recommended against ALL travel to northern Mail, given the continuing risk of kidnapping of Westerners by groups linked to al-Qaeda.

This is excellent advice for all nationalities of travelers.

The Foreign Office in its warning, also provides an excellent color-code map for areas to avoid:
