BRITISH travellers to Spain have been warned by the UK foreign office (FCO) about the threat of terrorism.
The government department updated its website yesterday to say ‘terrorists are likely to try to carry out attacks in Spain’.
There was no reason given for the update, but the FCO say Brits ‘should be vigilant and follow the instructions of the local authorities’.
The most recent terrorist incidents cited by the FCO in its advice are the Barcelona attacks of 2017 in Las Ramblas and Cambrils, which killed scores of people.
It comes as police on the Costa del Sol in Manilva arrested a suspected ISIS terrorist last week.
Authorities busted the apartment of the 27-year-old from Morocco and foiled his planned attack on the local feria.
Meanwhile, a local Muslim leader condemned the planned attack as ‘crazy’ and said the suspect was not a real Muslim.
