Terrorism
International and domestic terrorist groups have conducted attacks in Turkey. Most target Turkish government institutions and security forces however attacks have occurred in tourist areas and locations frequented by foreigners, resulting in deaths and injuries. Terrorist attacks have been regularly carried out in the past in the south-east, and it is possible they could occur in other parts of the country too, including in Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, other major centres, tourist areas and along the Mediterranean and Aegean coasts.

Kidnapping
There is an ongoing threat of kidnapping against westerners throughout Mauritania.  Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and other groups have specifically targeted and kidnapped foreigners in parts of North Africa and pose a significant security threat in Mauritania.  Much of the country is remote and terrorist and criminal groups have ease of movement across porous national borders.  There remains a strong possibility that foreigners kidnapped by tribal groups could be on-sold to AQIM.

Government offices, military facilities and public and commercial areas known to be frequented by Western expatriates and travellers could be potential targets for attack and New Zealanders are advised to take particular care in these places.  Westerners could also be targeted in opportunistic attacks.
