Saudi Arabia gives Lebanon travel warning

Saudi citizens have been urged by the government not to travel to Lebanon due to concerns over security, Reuters has reported. The kingdom joined the UAE, Bahrain, and Qatar in advising citizens to stay away from Lebanon, where sectarian tensions fuelled by the revolt in Syria sparked street fighting earlier this year. "Considering the unstable situation in the Lebanese arena, the foreign ministry warns its citizens against travelling to Lebanon for their own safety," a foreign ministry official said.
