This incident is a reminder to all travelers that there are no "safe" countries and that unexpected injuries are foreseeable in the world in which we all live today.
This attack is also a reminder for all tourists to subscribe to international medical treatment and evacuation coverage before they leave home, otherwise they may be forced to pay for medical treatment BEFORE it is rendered.
