The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has today changed their travel advice for Bahrain, advising against all travel to the country. This weekend Saudi troops crossed the border into Bahrain in order to help the government quell the rise in protests but there are fears that this will only increase the levels of violence. British nationals are advised to stay at home but if they need to move around then they should maintain a high level of security awareness and avoid large crowds and demonstrations which are continuing around the Pearl Roundabout and Financial Harbour. The British Embassy in Bahrain is now closed until further notice. If you have enquiries you can call 17574151 locally or 020 7008 1500 from the UK. Make sure you register with the FCO's LOCATE programme.
