Fearing the kidnapping of Israeli tourists, the Prime Minister Office's Counter-Terror Bureau warned Israelis on Wednesday against traveling to a group of countries in the Sahel region of Africa. According to the warning, an al-Qaida group in Africa is planning to kidnap western nationals, including Israelis, who visit the region. The specific countries which Israelis were warned against visiting were Mauritania, Togo, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Mali and northern Nigeria. On Tuesday, the CBY lifted a two-month old advisory against traveling to India after a plot to target Jewish centers was thwarted.
