Canada on Thursday warned its citizens against traveling to the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao [ARMM] because of a supposed kidnap threat.
The advisory follows the travel warning issued by United Kingdom and the United States against areas in Mindanao that are considered risky to foreign travelers.
“Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada advises against all travel to the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao [ARMM],” it said.
ARMM covers Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao and Sharif Kabunsuan. BERNICE CAMILLE V. BAUZON
