South Korea

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 02:02:30 +0000

There are no significant security issues elsewhere in South Korea but normal safety and security measures should be taken to ensure personal safety.

Political tensions
Relations between South and North Korea can be tense and this occasionally results in exchanges of live fire between North and South Korean border forces.  These incidents are most likely to occur in the north-western islands (including Yeonpyeong-do, Daecheong-do and Baengnyeong-do) and surrounding waters.

El Salvador

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 02:02:41 +0000

Violent crime
El Salvador has one of the highest violent crime rates in Latin America.  Much of this is related to the presence of street gangs.  Violent and petty crime is common and can include armed robbery, kidnapping, carjacking and assault.  “Express kidnappings” also occur in El Salvador, where criminals force a victim to withdraw funds from their bank account.  We recommend you use ATMs which are located within bank branches and during daylight hours only.

Uganda

Terrorism
There is a heightened threat from terrorism in Uganda. The Somalia-based terrorist group Al-Shabaab has threatened to carry out attacks in Uganda in response to the deployment of Ugandan military forces to Somalia as part of an African Union peacekeeping force.  On 13 September 2014, Ugandan authorities confirmed the disruption of a terrorist attack targeting Kampala.  Authorities continue to issue alerts warning of a heightened threat and have implemented security checks in public places.

There are no significant security risks associated with travel to New Caledonia.

Civil unrest
In May and June 2014, there were violent protests in the Goro and St Louis areas, south of Noumea, in relation to the activities of a local mine.  The protests included road blocks, rock-throwing and confrontations with police.  There have been a number of security incidents since then, including carjacking and rock-throwing.  Further incidents are possible.
