COMMENT: As most of you may or may not know, a great deal of research and planning goes into the production of this site each day.
Part of my daily regimen is to review the on-line foreign affairs sites of a good number of governments in order to offer our readers a "global" view of security threats travelers face all over the world.
As part of this effort, I would like to offer a virtual applause to the Government of Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade:
Recently, DFAT released a "Must-Read" piece on global kidnapping (see the below link) that succinctly and concisely describes those countries where abduction, kidnapping and hostage-taking frequently occur.
Thus, this excellent link should be read by all frequent travelers, regardless of nationality.
