Don't travel to Lebanon, Canadians warned Last Updated Fri, 14 Jul 2006 17:08:40 EDT CBC News Canadians should not travel to Lebanon under any circumstances as fighting between Israel and Hezbollah militants intensifies, the Foreign Affairs Department warned Thursday. "Heightened tensions throughout the region and the deteriorating security situation put Canadians at greater risk," the advisory stated. "Canadians currently in Lebanon should remain indoors and minimize movement until further notice. Key highways leading out of Lebanon could become targets for military attacks." Summer is traditionally Lebanon's peak tourism season. Many in the Lebanese-Canadian community are asking the federal government to help vacationing Canadians trapped in the country to return home. The government has said it has no plans to extract Canadian nationals. Israeli attacks have led to the closure of Beirut's international airport, as well as a major highway connecting Beirut with Damascus, Syria's capital. Lebanon's ports and coast have been blockaded by Israeli warships. http://www.cbc.ca/story/canada/national/2006/07/14/lebanon-advisory.html Fox is reporting 8 Canadian deaths in Lebanon--tourists.
