New Delhi: A day after a massive suicide bombing in Damascus killed 26 people, India on Saturday issued a travel advisory asking Indians to avoid non-essential travel to Syria.
"In view of the situation prevailing in parts of Syria, Indian nationals are advised to avoid all non-essential travel to Syria for the present," the external affairs ministry said in a statement here.
The security situation is worsening by the day in Syria that is witnessing anti-government protests.
A suicide bomber killed 26 people and wounded 63 in the Syrian capital Damascus Friday. On Dec 23, at least 44 people were killed by two suicide bombings that targeted security buildings in Damascus.
