Political Situation
In May 2009, 26 years of military conflict between the Sri Lankan Government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) ended.  In 2011, the State of Emergency and Emergency regulations were lifted but heightened security measures remain in place in parts of Sri Lanka.  These could include checkpoints along roads and a visible security presence in some areas.  New Zealanders in Sri Lanka should follow any instructions and restrictions issued by the local authorities.

Terrorism
There is an ongoing threat of terrorism in Saudi Arabia and Saudi authorities continue to disrupt terrorist plots.

International terrorist groups continue to issue statements calling for attacks against Westerners on the Arabian Peninsula, including in Saudi Arabia. Since October 2014, a US national has been killed and two other Western nationals (Canadian and Danish) have been attacked in public places by individuals who may have been inspired by calls to attack Westerners.

Civil unrest
Demonstrations in Kuwait take place occasionally and are normally peaceful.  Protests have sometimes led to violence with police using tear gas and stun grenades to disperse protestors. New Zealanders in Kuwait are advised to avoid demonstrations as even those intended to be peaceful have the potential to turn violent.  We recommend monitoring events through local media and adhering to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
